RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- The former UN special rapporteur on the right to health Paul Hunt said that the international community has a legal and human responsibility towards the people of Gaza Strip.
Hunt's statement came during a meeting with unity government Health Minister Jawad Awad in Ramallah on Monday.
Awad said that the Israeli occupation is practicing unprecedented fascist genocide in Gaza, pointing out that most of the medicines in West Bank's drug stores were transferred to Gaza despite the acute shortage of medical supplies.
For his part, Yousef Muheisen, the program officer of World Health Organization, said that the organization branch in the West Bank will provide all assistance to the Palestinian Health Ministry until the end of the crisis.
Palestinian Health Ministry has formed a joint operations room between the West Bank and Gaza in light of the continued Israeli aggression to meet urgent medical needs and coordinate efforts in this regard.
