Urgent Call for Immediate International Intervention

January 4, 2009

Palestinian Medical Relief Society and Physicians for Human Rights-Israel
Urgent Call for Immediate International Intervention

The most recent escalation of the Israeli attack against the Gaza population has led to further chaos and destruction and to rising numbers of casualties.

In addition to total closure of all crossings and destruction of essential infrastructures including electricity, running water, communications and roads, hospitals are on the verge of collapse due to
overload and the inability to provide adequate intensive care to the high numbers of casualties. External evacuation of the sick and wounded is completely prohibited.

Due to telephone and mobile communication failures, dangerous conditions, and the limited number of foreign press on the ground, thereare growing difficulties reporting the situation to the outside world.

The Palestinian Medical Relief Society and Physicians for Human Rights-Israel call for urgent and immediate intervention by the international community, and especially the Quartet, for the enforcement
of an immediate ceasefire.
