Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) is greatly saddened by the high loss of life and further mass casualties in Gaza this week and outraged that the safety of medical workers in Gaza was once again endangered as they carried out their vital humanitarian functions.

Monday 14 May was the deadliest day in Gaza since 2014. According to the Ministry of Health, 60 Palestinians were killed, including eight children and one health worker, and 2,771 injured after the use of live ammunition, rubber bullets and tear gas by Israeli forces targeting demonstrators. Of those hospitalised, 1359 suffered gunshot wounds.

Medical teams in Gaza also came under attack. Paramedic Musa Abuhassanin was fatally shot in the chest and 18 health personnel were injured, including Canadian-Palestinian doctor Tarek Loubani who was shot in both legs. Seven ambulances were damaged after they were targeted with tear gas canisters.

The following day, on the 70 anniversary of the Nakba, two Palestinians were reported to have been killed by Israeli forces in Gaza, and 417 injured. Multiple demonstrations also took place today across the West Bank, in commemoration of the Nakba. Initial figures from UN OCHA indicate that at least 166 Palestinians, including four children,…
