Report: Israeli siege claimed lives of 116 patients since beginning of 2008 A report issued by the European campaign to lift the siege stated that the number of the siege victims has risen to 116 Palestinian patients including children since the beginning of 2008 which indicates the Gaza Strip is witnessing a notable rise in the death toll of patients.
According to the report, the total number of the siege victims since the Israeli siege imposed about a year ago, thus, has reached 192 patients.
The campaign had warned that the specter of death is threatening a long list of patients who suffer chronic and serious diseases due to the lack of medicines and the Israeli restrictions imposed on travel for medical treatment outside the besieged Gaza Strip.
The campaign underlined that the statute of the international criminal court defines "genocide" in article no. six as any action that would deliberately inflict on a group of people conditions of life calculated to bring about physical destruction in whole or in part. *Source: Palestine Information Centre
