The Palestinian Ministry of Health called for international health organizations, human rights institutions, and the International Committee of the Red Cross to urgently act to curb the escalating practices of the occupation and settlers against treatment centers and medical crews, allowing them to perform their humanitarian duty. They emphasized that targeting medics, ambulances, treatment centers, and medical staff, obstructing their movement and preventing them from reaching the wounded, constitutes a blatant and clear violation of international humanitarian law and international norms and treaties.
