In a post on X, the MSF said that the organization has been seeing increased violence and restriction on movemen, including blockade of ambulances in the occupied West Bank, reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).

It added that its teams in the occupied West Bank have been subjected to increased violence and restrictions.

“People with life-threatening injuries cannot wait to reach hospitals,” the organization stressed. “Attacks against health workers and the disruption of access to healthcare are unacceptable.”

A Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) paramedic was shot dead by Jewish “settlers’ gunfire” in the town of Al-Sawiya in Nablus on Saturday.

Israeli forces withdrew from the town of Tulkarm and the Nur Shams refugee camp on Sunday morning, following three days of violent raid that killed seven, detained several and left widespread destruction.

Meanwhile a team from PRCS, Mental Health teams and coordinator of the International Committee of the Red Cross conducted a tour of the Nur Shams camp saying that “a response plan will be implemented with partners to alleviate the suffering of citizens affected by the recent invasion by occupation forces.”
