NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Doctors from a public hospital in Nablus organized a demonstration on Wednesday to protest the assault of a colleague by the relatives of a patient being treated in the pediatrics ward.

Dr. Hussein al-Sleibi was assaulted in Rafidia hospital on Tuesday by two relatives of a child, doctors told Ma'an. The family members threatened al-Sleibi and two nurses with a knife during the incident after claiming they were neglecting the patient.

Doctors said they organized the demonstration to protest a growing number of assaults against medical teams.

Director of the Nablus office of the Ministry of Health, Amirah al-Hindi, told Ma'an that the last decade has seen a spike in violent incidents against hospital staff.

"We understand the citizens' demands and we know that we should provide the best medical services possible, but they should also understand that we are humans and working with limited capacities."
