J Street Welcomes Lifting of Medical Voucher Restrictions for Gazans

June 30, 2017

We welcome the Palestinian Authority’s decision to lift restrictions on financial commitments for Gazan civilians’ medical treatment, which will allow the Strip’s residents to again seek urgent care in Israel, the West Bank and Jordan.

As strongly as we oppose Hamas and its stranglehold on the Gaza Strip, Gazan civilians must not be reduced to pawns in a wider conflict. Further steps like these by the Palestinian Authority, Israel and the international community to address the ever-deepening humanitarian crisis in Gaza would serve the shared interests of stability, security and peace in the region.
