Quote: “We were taken by a storm with the murder of a Palestinian heroine, Razzan Asyraf al-Najar, who was shot by Israeli snipers while she was on duty on the battlefield. This clearly violates the Geneva International Humanitarian Law that prohibits physical harm to the medical personnel on duty. It’s time for people from all around the world to open their eyes to the suffering of the Palestinians, especially fellow medical practitioners! We should help them regardless of our differences in races, beliefs, opinions, even the nationality. Let us all rise up against oppression!”
