Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) is continuing its concerted efforts to support the health sector in the Gaza Strip, where seven hospitals of the Palestinian health ministry had benefited from the aid that included medical consumables by QRCS for surgical operations for the poor patients, which contributed to saving the lives of a number of injured people during the recent aggression on the Strip. Emergency and Disaster Medicine Consultant at the Palestinian health ministry Dr Mohamed al-Attar said that the medical consumables supplied by QRCS to handle the emergency cases had offset the deficiency of some vital medical supplies. He pointed out that QRCS had already supported the training of at least 60 physicians and the supporting medical practitioners operating in medicine and emergency services to further enhance their capabilities to operate during crisis times and subsequently determine the priorities which had a positive impact during the aggression on Gaza through responding swiftly to the emergency cases and professionally handle them based on the global health protocols.
