A 61-year-old cancer patient, a seriously ill woman and an infant died on Tuesday bringing the number of Palestinian patients who died in the Gaza Strip as a result of the Israeli oppressive siege to 60.

Medical sources said that the Palestinian infant Dua"a Habib from Gaza city and Safiyya Shahin from central Gaza Strip died at dawn Tuesday after long suffering from chronic diseases.

The 61-year-old Mohammed Khader, a cancer patient, was pronounced dead on Tuesday morning after being denied permission by the IOF troops besieging the Strip to receive treatment abroad.

Death is threatening a long list of seriously ill Palestinians in the Strip as a result of lack of proper medication and the travel ban.

The popular committee against the siege has warned of acceleration in the number of deaths in the Strip.

The health ministry in the PA caretaker government in Gaza said that the health condition in the Strip was passing through its worst stages as a result of the siege, noting that 600 to 700 patients usually ask for permission for treatment abroad each month while 250 to 300 patients need urgent treatment other than the 900 cancer and kidney failure patients.
