news, JERUSALEM, GAZA – Israeli air forces continue to intensify their attacks in the last days of Ramadan. The attacks around Al Aqsa and the airstrikes at civilians in Gaza have caused 22 casualties and hundreds of injuries.

Health facilities in Palestine were packed with the victims of the attacks, including children who are wounded or killed.

According to the ACT’s Indonesian Medical Clinic, the health workers were also injured in the attack by Israeli zionists. They tried to blockade the ambulance from treating the injured victims by shooting the ambulance with rubber bullets.

Palestine’s health system has already born a heavy burden because, even before the attack, they have been busy with the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. They are in a dire situation after the supplies of medicines and disposable materials are running out. The two incidents can potentially paralyze health facilities in Gaza, especially if the number of airstrike victims increases.

In Indonesia, the President of Aksi Cepat Tanggap Ibnu Khajar stated his support for the entire medical team who treats the injured victims caused by the brutality of Israeli Zionists. Ibnu also condemned the Israeli forces who attacked medical workers, something that Ibnu considered a very barbaric action.

“We encourage all Muslims out there to stand up with our brothers and sisters in Palestine so that they can continue their patience in protecting their land and Al Aqsa Mosque from the zionists' contamination,” said Ibnu, Tuesday (5/11/2021).[]
