Blockaded Gaza Strip nears 'medical crisis'

Territory running out of medical supplies due to major delays in West Bank deliveries.

    Health authorities in the Gaza Strip are warning that there is a medical crisis unfolding, following major delays in deliveries of medical supplies from the West Bank.

    In the past week a humanitarian convoy arrived from Europe and next week the so-called Freedom Flotilla is expected to set sail for the region.

    But as Al Jazeera's Nadim Baba reports from Gaza, the medical shortages have increased calls for an end to Israel's blockade and Palestinian disunity.
