GAZA, (PIC)-- The international Palestinian campaign to break Gaza siege appealed to the international community to intervene to save hundreds of Palestinian patients who are at risk of dying because of the Israeli suffocating siege imposed on Gaza more than nine months ago.
Dr. Eyad Al-Seraj, the head of the campaign, stated that the Israeli siege is an unjust mass punishment and affected economic, social, educational and health sectors, adding that Gaza hospitals suffer an acute shortage of all kinds of medical supplies especially medicines and appliances.
In another context, the Palestinian scholars league called on Wednesday on the Islamic nation's scholars to respond to the Jewish rabbis' twisted religious edicts which called for killing Palestinian activists who are defending the Aqsa Mosque against Judaization schemes.
In a press statement received by the PIC, the league stated that the Jewish rabbis' invitation represents a kind of development in the Zionist culture, as the call for murder found a place in the religious Jewish books by rabbis inciting and planning for crimes.
