Gaza’s cancer patients face death amid Israel war

# The Palestinian Authority’s Health minister, Mai al-Kaila, says the lives of 70 cancer patients are under serious threat due to a lack of treatment. Al-Kaila explains that approximately two-thousand cancer patients in the Gaza Strip are living in catastrophic health conditions. The director of the Turkish-Palestinian Friendship Hospital, Subhi Sukeyk, reports that essential medicines have run out, and specialised treatments, including chemotherapy, cannot be provided. Sukeyk notes that some patients have been transferred to Dar Essalam Hospital in Khan Younis, which offers basic clinical care.
