Injured Gazans Untreated Due to Ambulance Shortage

Palestinian Health Ministry says 22 ambulances have been damaged by Israeli fire, 19 medical personnel killed while on the job and another 83 have been injured.

Hospitals in East Jerusalem and the West Bank have been unable to receive injured patients from the Gaza Strip due to a severe shortage of ambulances. The Red Crescent in the West Bank could send some 20 ambulances to pick up injured Gazans from the Erez border crossing, but has not yet received permission from Israel to do so.
