EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma’an) – Qatari cardiac surgeons have been granted permission to enter the Gaza Strip where they are scheduled to carry out open-heart surgeries for children, an official at the crossing said Tuesday.

The delegation of 10 cardiac surgeons arrived in Cairo Tuesday and was scheduled to cross Wednesday via Rafah crossing.

Palestinian officials told Ma’an that the Qatari surgeons would operate on 40 children.

Before this, I guess children in Gaza needing open heart surgeries just died, denied medical treatment by the Israeli Occupier! I also cannot help but wonder if any of these conditions were caused by Israeli attacks on these children in Gaza!

Thats clearly untrue, my daughter has been working as a medical secretary in Hadassah Hospital, Mt. Scopus , in the pediatric ward for more than 25 years. This is what she told me that occurred there recently. " At present there are 14 Arab children, and 1 Jewish child in her department, which is staffed by Arab & Jewish personnel. #1 Could ask her self what happened to the hospital facilities the Israelis built in Gaza and left behind befire their unilateral withdrawl.

Strange that Sherri is not asking what happened to the hospitals, medical facilities and infrastructure built and left behind by the Israelis, and left to go to to wrack and ruin by the Gazan government.

SHORT MEASURE COWARDLY QATAR! Just end the ILLEGAL Israeli OCCUPATION & BLOCKADE of Gaza. Set ALL Palestinian people free,to be able to work,earn,move freely,build Palestine,in SELF-DETERMINED DIGNITY!With equipped hospitals,full pharmacies,good healthy DIET! Give them their SOVEREIGN PASSPORTS & Palestinian FREEDOM. You DON'T operate on children IN AN ILLEGAL CONCENTRATION camp,blockaded by brutal occupiers.That's COLLUSION &short measure!You SET THEM FREE,B4 Zionists COLLECTIVELY PUNISH AGAIN!

I sense some hostilities by heartless people that are apologists for the apartheid restrictions imposed on Gaza. Isreal may have left a structure but nothing in it, and nothing to work with to help these children. People in Gaza couldn't even get food supplies, nevertheless medical assistance. Does making excuses make you feel better about the atrocities and genocides committed against the people of Gaza? That's sad! God bless those surgeons that are willing to help!! That's what should be said.

Is there a joint Spanish-Dutch hasbara-crew around here ? I find NO evidence on the net about hospital facilites left behind by the Israelis in Gaza. Please give me a link to improve my knowledge on the issue ! ALL housing units were destoyed by the IDF, and only the greenhouses were left intact because they were bought and paid for by the PA ! @ 2 Yeah, and those 14 Arab kids that you daughter speaks about are ALL from Gaza, right ?

@ Mel Why don't you go post your comments somewhere else ! Always the same and the same and the same and ..... You might think this is a short measure, but then I guess you don't have a kid who's actually waiting to have a open-heart surgery !!! Instead of spending your time here, telling Palestinians what to do and think, why don't you spend some more time telling your own government to stop financing the Zio-bots ! Without you, no Israel ! So turn off the 'teaching' a little, will ya !
