Medical report on impact of war on Gaza

Sr Alicia Vacas, a Comboni Missionary Sister and nurse,  and  Miri Weingarten, an advocacy worker,  took part in a Physicians for Human Rights delegation to Gaza in January.

On 23 March Physicians for Human Rights-Israel and the Palestinian Medical Relief Society launched their  joint report into violations of international law during the 22 day offensive. Based on numerous first hand testimonies obtained during an international, independent fact-finding mission, it documents causes of death, degree of care for the sick and wounded, and the treatment of medical personnel and facilities.

Physicians for Human Rights–Israel argues that the attack on Gaza revealed a stark decline in Israeli Defence Force treatment of Palestinian civilians.

Sr  Alicia and Miri Weingarten will be presenting the report on 24 June at 7pm in the 
Meeting Rooms 1A & B, Development House, 56-64 Leonard Street, London EC2A 4LT

All are  welcome. Their tour is organised by Medact (a UK charity for global health, working on issues related to conflict, poverty and the environment) 020 7324 4739,  and Pax Christi (an international Catholic movement for peace) 020 8203 4884,
