13/12/10: IOF block transfer of bodies

(Originally posted on the Palestinian Information Centre website)

“GAZA, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) are still preventing Palestinian ambulances from transferring the bodies of Palestinian fighters who were killed last night east of Al-Bureij refugee camp in central Gaza Strip.

Two Palestinian resistance fighters were killed on Saturday night and one soldier was seriously wounded during armed clashes at Gaza borders.

Palestinian medical sources said that the ambulance crews contacted the Red Cross to send its own ambulances to the scene, but to no avail.

The Palestinian high committee of ambulance and emergency condemned this Israeli act as a violation of the international humanitarian law and appealed to the international human rights organizations to intervene to pressure the Israeli side to allow the transfer of the two bodies to Gaza hospitals.”
