WHO Says Patient Dies Amid Lengthy Israeli Checks On Gaza Convoy

The World Health Organization said yesterday that a patient died in an emergency convoy en route to a Gaza City hospital, during repeated and lengthy Israeli checks.

WHO chief, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at the weekend that the UN health agency and its partners had managed to deliver essential trauma and surgical supplies to the Al-Ahli hospital and to transfer 19 critical patients.

But yesterday, he provided more details about the high-risk mission, saying on X, formerly Twitter, that the WHO was deeply concerned about prolonged checks and detention of health workers which it says puts the lives of already fragile patients at risk.

Tedros did not say in his message who carried out the checks, but a WHO spokesman told AFP they took place at an Israeli army checkpoint.
