Till now, 500 urgent surgeries cancelled in besieged Gaza

Days of Palestine -

Ministry of Health in Gaza Strip said on Wednesday that 500 urgent surgeries had been delayed in Gaza after hygiene services stopped in all Gaza hospitals.

In a press statement, Spokesman for the Ministry of Health in Gaza Strip, Ashraf Qedra, said that the reason for the suspension of hygiene services was the lack of a safe health environment for the fourth day in a row in health facilities.

He added that dental services and laboratory examinations had declined due to the discontinuation of hygiene services in primary care centres.

It is worth noting that the companies responsible for hygiene stopped working in Gaza Strip hospitals because they have not been paid for the fifth month in a row now.
