Two Palestinian patients reportedly died in Gaza on Sunday after they had been delayed access outside of the coastal region, due to ongoing Israeli closure of the enclave.
Medics confirmed that Zainab Bashir, 55, of the Deir Elbalah town and Yousef Al-Madhoun, of Gaza city, died yesterday of chronic diseases, bringing to the death toll of patients whose access outside the Strip has been delayed because of the siege to 117

Lives of a big number of other patients have been threatened after their exit from Gaza for referral at outside hospitals, or because access to medications has been made difficult due to the Israeli measures against the Mediterranean Strip since June of last year.
