Seventeen member states and Palestine, which has special status within the World Health Organization (WHO), submitted to the organization a draft resolution demanding that Israel honor its obligations when it comes to protecting medical and humanitarian teams in the Gaza Strip.

The draft resolution calls on Israel to "ensure respect and protection for all medical and humanitarian workers and appeals to the international community to provide sufficient financial resources for the reconstruction of the health system in Gaza," Palestinian media reported.

The draft resolution also points to the risks of the presence of thousands of bodies still under the rubble, as well as the poor hygienic conditions and overcrowding in shelters in the Gaza Strip.

Among the countries that submitted the draft resolution to the WHO are countries from the Middle East as well as China and Bolivia.
