Israeli Soldiers Accused of Allegedly Attacking Health Workers in Gaza Strip


OSLO (Xinhua) – Sven Mollekleiv, president of the Norwegian Red Cross, accused Israeli soldiers on Monday of allegedly attacking health workers in the Gaza Strip and preventing the latter from retrieving the wounded and dead.

“Our sister organization – the Palestine Red Crescent Society – stated that their health care teams were directly attacked by Israeli forces,” Mollekleiv told the Norwegian news agency NTB.

Mollekleiv described the alleged action by Israeli soldiers as “a violation of international law.”

As the civilian population in the Gaza Strip is totally dependent on health professionals to move across the front lines, Mollekleiv demand that health workers operating there be given free access to the areas where there are bodies and wounded persons.
