The number of victims of the Israeli siege on the Gaza Strip has risen to 349 after the death of Abdul Halim Zurub, 49, who was suffering from a brain tumor, the health ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.

 

The statement added that Zurub, from Rafah district, had tied to travel abroad for treatment but could not due to the strict siege on the Strip.

 

Doctors desperately tried to save his life after his health condition worsened lately but the shortage in medical equipment as a result of the siege and closure of crossings crippled their attempts, the ministry underlined.

 

It highlighted the importance of opening all crossings topped by the Rafah border terminal to allow patients to travel for treatment outside the Strip in addition to allowing entry of medicine and medical equipment.
