The rising number of wounds and casualties in protracted protests and clashes along the Gaza Strip has put pressure on the region's hospitals already destitute of medicine and medical supplies. With more Palestinians wounded in daily anti-Israel rallies dubbed the "Great March of Return" since March 30, hospitals face even more acute shortages of drugs and equipment. "The medical crisis has going on for a long time. We were already short of medicines and medical instruments. And now, the increased number of patients coming in hamper our capacity for treatment in a tremendous way," said Amin Suhabani, head of the emergency room in a rehabilitation hospital in Gaza.
