PSR Supports IPPNW Affiliates’ Statement on Gaza Situation

June 16, 2010

PSR appreciates the courage of the Israeli and Palestinian affiliates of International Physicians for Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) in issuing the following joint statement. As the US affiliate of IPPNW, PSR supports this statement as well.  The extreme public health consequences of the blockade are of great concern to PSR.  We are thus calling for an end to the blockade and strongly support pursuit of diplomatic pathways to increase peace, health and security for the people of Israel and Gaza.


Palestinian Physicians For the Prevention of Nuclear War (PPPNW) and the Israeli Physicians For Peace and the Preservation Of The Environment (IPPPE) Affiliates of International Physicians For the Prevention of Nuclear War, Agree as follows:

Our two organizations condemn the armed assault in international waters on ships carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza and deplore the resulting loss of lives.

As physicians on both sides, we agree that the health of the population of Gaza is of deep concern and that medical aid is urgently needed.

We are calling for an international inquiry into this incident, and an immediate end to the blockade of Gaza.

We call upon the Israeli and the Palestinian leaders to enter into serious negotiations in goodwill to find a nonviolent, peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.


Dr. Abdelaziz Alabadi, MD - President, PPPNW, Palestine

Prof. Ernesto Kahan MD - President and Councilor, IPPPE, Israel

Dr. Mustafa Ghanim, MD, PhD - External Relations, PPPNW, Palestine

Dr. Ra’anan Friedmann M.D, PhD - Vice President, Vice Councilor & Spokesman, IPPPE, Israel
