The health ministry in the PA caretaker government on Sunday accused the zionist occupation authority of carrying out "systematic execution" of Palestinian patients in the Gaza Strip in flagrant violation of international laws.

The ministry, in a press release, said that the death of three patients in Gaza on Saturday bringing the number of victims of the zOA siege to 68 in the past seven months reflected the zOA's insistence on going ahead with its plan.

It pointed out that the three suffered from cancer of the kidney, of the stomach and of the blood.
The ministry said that the death of three patients on a single day pointed to a "serious indicator" threatening the lives of hundreds of patients in Gaza.

It stressed that legal and human rights institutions should assume their roles in demanding an immediate end to the siege especially the ban on patients' travel and on entry of enough and needed medications.
