The Gaza Strip is heading towards an even greater humanitarian crisis as seven more healthcare centers closed their doors on Thursday, due to the ever tightening 11-year-old Israeli siege.
According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza, fuel ran out in seven more healthcare centers, in different areas across the small coastal enclave.
â€śThis problem, which is a result of the Israeli siege, happened due to the lack of fuel needed to operate electricity generators,â€ť a statement from the ministry said, according to Days of Palestine.
Earlier this week, the ministry announced that Beit Hanoun Childrenâ€™s Hospital, in the north of Gaza, had closed its doors due to the lack of fuel.
Spokesman of the Ministry in Gaza Ashraf al-Qidra said: â€śThere is no horizon for solving this crisis with the Israeli occupation authorities or the Palestinian Authority in the occupied West Bank.â€ť
