ABM EMERGENCY APPEAL FOR GAZA

Conflict in Gaza has escalated this week, with at least 67 Gazans killed during Israeli air attacks. At least seven people have also been killed by Hamas rockets fired into Israel. Hundreds more have been injured and many homes destroyed.

The escalation was triggered by two recent developments. Firstly, Israeli settlers have lodged a case in Israel’s Supreme Court to evict a number of Palestinian families from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah, a mainly Palestinian neighbourhood of East Jerusalem. Secondly, Palestinians and Israeli police clashed at a Muslim holy site, al-Aqsa Mosque, last Monday.
 
The escalation of conflict occurs as Gaza struggles with a new wave of COVID, reaching 1000 new cases per day in April. As ABM partner Al Ahli Hospital observed, ‘There are not enough beds or oxygen for patients.’

For those ABM supporters wishing to assist families affected by the latest conflict, ABM has launched an appeal.

Funds will go to ABM’s partner, the Al Ahli Hospital, to enable them to access precious diesel fuel to operate their power generators, and purchase emergency medicines and medical supplies for the treatment of those injured and traumatised.
