Refrain Attack On Non-Military Sites In Gaza - MMA

KUALA LUMPUR, July 14 (Bernama) -- The Malaysian Medical Association (MMA) has called on all parties in the Middle East conflict to refrain from attacking non-military sites, especially hospitals, schools and orphanages.

Its president, Dr H. Krishna Kumar in a statement in Kuala Lumpur, Monday, said MMA strongly condemned any form of violence as most of those hurt and killed were the innocent population, mainly children and the elderly.

"We also strongly condemn any violence against medical staff who are only out there to help the injured and maimed.

"We hope all warring parties listen to our voice as we represent the majority who are peaceful," he said.

Media reports said 172 Palestinians had been killed while 1,230 were wounded since Israel launched its 'Operation Protective Edge' on Tuesday.
