"Don't send medicine to Gaza"

A letter written by a Gazan to PA prime minister Fayyad was reproduced in Firas Press.

The anonymous citizen asks Fayyad to stop sending truckloads of medicines to Gaza. According to him, Hamas takes these medicines that are meant to be freely available to Gazans who go to hospitals and clinics and instead redirects them to Hamas-owned pharmacies where they charge exorbitant prices.

The letter-writer also charges individual members of Hamas of taking the medicines and selling them privately.

He ends off begging Fayyad to stop sending the medicines, which have only increased theft and corruption in Gaza.
