[Correspondence] The health of Palestinians

I commend Richard Horton (Nov 2, p 1612)1 for discussing Israeli military occupation of Palestinian land, including the siege of the Gaza Strip, and the effects this occupation has on health and access to health care. It also includes WHO data2 on attacks by Israel on Palestinian health services, affecting patients, health workers, ambulances, and health facilities. Horton also includes his Israeli colleagues’ response to WHO’s report.2
