Fifteen patients died since the beginning of the year in the Gaza strip because of Israeli Occupation violations, according to a Palestinian human rights organization.

Three of the dead palestinians were children, said Mezan Center for Human Rights.

Restrictions imposed on the people’s freedom to move, especially patients, makes it hard for people in Gaza to reach hospitals.

This increases the chances of dying due to the patient's’ health conditions, added the center.

In 2012, the UN warned that Gaza could become uninhabitable by 2020.
