Jewish Voice for Peace Health Advisor Dr. Alice Rothchild on Gaza Catastrophe as Health System Fails
Written by GRB on 06/11/2023
Israel says it is responsible for an attack on a convoy of ambulances outside Gaza’s largest hospital on Friday that killed at least 15 people. Meanwhile, doctors in Gaza lack the resources to provide adequate care to the sick and injured, thanks to Israel’s blockade of water, food and fuel from entering the besieged region. For more on the rapidly deteriorating state of medical care in Gaza and Israel’s illegal targeting of medical providers, we speak with Dr. Alice Rothchild, a retired OB-GYN who has long worked in Palestine and is a member of the steering committee of the Jewish Voice for Peace Health Advisory Council.
