Gaza activists prevent entry of medications sent by Israel

May 16, 2018 7:03 P.M. (Updated: May 18, 2018 2:27 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Palestinian activists from the Gaza Strip prevented the entry of medications trucks coming from the Israeli Magen David Adom “Red Star of David” through the Kerem Shalom crossing in the southern Gaza Strip late Tuesday.

Activists stressed that they refuse to “beautify the image of the occupation” through accepting medications.

The National Committee of Return Camps in the Gaza Strip confirmed their rejection of receiving any sort of medications “by the executors of Monday’s massacre against the innocent,” calling for returning the medications.

Between Monday and Tuesday, at least 62 Palestinians had been killed by Israeli forces along the Gaza border, as Palestinians took to protests in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, or "catastrophe," when 750,000 Palestinians were forcibly expelled from their homes when the state of Israel was established in 1948.

The committee called upon Palestinian officials to take the necessary procedures to return the medications.
