Palestinian Information Center
As a result of the Israeli unjust siege imposed on the Gaza Strip, a
Palestinian woman, the mother of Hamas spokesman, died on Saturday
of a brain stroke in addition to a six-year-old Palestinian girl who
was suffering from brain atrophy. Palestinian medical sources
reported that Nadia Abu Zuhri, 51, the mother of Dr. Sami Abu Zuhri,
the Hamas spokesman, died Saturday evening in Gaza and after a few
hours a girl child called Razan Atallah, 6, joined her because their
medical treatment is not available in Gaza hospitals and they were
not allowed by the IOA to travel abroad....
The death of Mrs. Abu Zuhri and 6yo Atallah, brings the number of
patients who have died as a result of the unjust siege imposed on
the Gaza Strip rose to 55 victims.

> This is an official Israeli government report covering the first
6 months of the Hamas takeover of the Gaza Strip:
> In the 183 days that have passed since the middle of June, 428
rockets and 590 mortar bombs have been fired from the Gaza Strip at
Israeli civilians and soldiers. In addition to damage to property, a
number of Israeli civilians were wounded in the attacks, and many
more were treated for shock. Detailed full report:

> Palestinian medical sources announced on Friday night the death
of a Palestinian woman called Awatif Ibrahim, 52, who was suffering
from chronic diseases, because the IOA refused to let her travel to
receive necessary medical treatment abroad. Her death brings the
number of Palestinian patients that died because of the Israeli
unjust siege imposed on the Gaza Strip to 53 victims. The popular
committee against siege warned that there is acceleration in the
death toll in Gaza (& I can personally vouch for that as my recent
comment on Digg suggested, we're moving up to one a day), stressing
that serious symptoms started to appear amongst the Gaza people
which foreshadows a serious health disaster. For his part, Khaled
Radi, the spokesman for the health ministry in the caretaker
government, opined that the number of deaths may double in the
presence of more than thousand patients suffering serious illnesses
and prevented by the IOA to receive medical treatment abroad.

their lives are seriously threatened due to lack of medicines and
