MOH launches first naval paramedic team

Oct. 8, 2018 3:12 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 9, 2018 11:17 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza announced, on Monday, that it is prepared to launch its first ever naval paramedic team.

Spokesperson of the ministry, Ashraf al-Qidra, said that this new step shows the dedication of the medical teams and their ability to achieve all means to secure the lives of peaceful protesters in the naval march.

The National Committee to Break the Siege announced that the 11th naval march would set off, on Monday, towards the northern borders with Israel.

The march sets off at 3:00 p.m. from the Beit Lahiya beach.

Dozens of boats are taking part in the march, in addition to thousands of Palestinians who would be protesting at the beach.

Many attempts have been made throughout the years to draw the public's attention to and break the on-going siege of the Gaza Strip whether via ships attempting to sail into Gaza or ships attempting to sail from Gaza.

Last week, Israeli forces opened fire at Palestinians protesting at the northern beach of the Gaza Strip in solidarity with the naval march, causing many injuries.
