BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israel has held up medical supplies for the Gaza Strip at a checkpoint since Thursday morning, the Palestinian Authority said on Thursday night.

PA Health Minister Hani Abdeen told Ma'an the Ramallah-based government had sent 15 trucks with 200 boxes of medicine and medical supplies to the Gaza Strip.

"We sent the first batch of medications this morning and it’s now waiting at Israeli checkpoints for permission to pass to Gaza," Abdeen said.

The minister said international organizations had promised to help the PA get Israeli permission to deliver medicine to the Gaza Strip.

Malone...maybe its because they are under occupation? If someone came and held you hostage and said you have no right to your land, property, etc then what would you do? Oh that's right your the chosen one you don't have to. Ridiculous open your eyes.

You can't possibly be serious. Can we talk about Israeli soldiers firing on children playing games? Because the Israelis are the aggressors by any calculations.

@Malone, yes 3 israeli innocent civiians were killed, who were minding their own business, but so were 22 innocent Palestinian civilians killed. Holding medicine is not an act of war - its downright ethnic cleansing. Children, women, sick, elderly - ALL WHO ARE CIVILIANS AND INNOCENT - are being forced to die from sickness because of withholding medicine. Check your privilege and reassess your mind.

Wow Israel. What happened to defending yourself? Are you defending yourself by holding medical supplies by people who are dying? Is that how you defend yourself. I can't believe that the whole world is watching this and not doing anything about it. And I can't believe that people are actually supporting you kill innocent people. There will be justice one day.
