Haaretz reported this in a story on 27.3.05 about why the Gaza health system cannot cope adequately with diagnosis and treatment of (specifically breast) cancer: "For years, Israel has prevented Gaza Strip physicians from taking specialized training at Israeli hospitals... Palestinian doctors from Gaza are prevented from leaving for specialized training and further study and medical students cannot complete their studies at universities in the West Bank and abroad... Medications are not arriving in the Gaza Strip with regularity and .. . patients are not managing to get to medical treatments. Essential equipment for the treatment of cancer, such as radiology equipment, does not exist in Gaza because of Israel's opposition... [T]he opposition stems from the use of radioactive materials in the treatment". It is no defense to say "he was terminal" if Israeli policies are a significant factor in why cancers treatable elsewhere disproportionately become terminal when they strike in Gaza.
