Jakarta, 9 Jumadil Awwal 1437/17 February 2016 (MINA)  –  After completing the construction of Indonesian Hospital in Gaza, Palestine, the Medical Emergency Rescue Committee (MER-C) plans to build an Indonesian Hospital in the West Bank.

The plan was put forward by MER-C Presidium Chairman Joserizal journalist while he welcomed three volunteers who just landed at the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport Tuesday night from Gaza after completing their tasks in the besieged enclave.

The construction of the hospital will be funded entirely from donations of Indonesian people. If the community support this noble cause, we will certainly be trying to make it
happen. Of course, with the collaboration with the Al-Fatah Islamic Boarding School, he told Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA).

Jurnalis could not explain when the planned hospital would begin, adding he would first choose the suitable location before starting the construction.

According to Jurnalis, the construction of the hospital is part of a peace mediation.  It is also part of the struggle for the liberation of
Palestine and the return Al-Aqsa to the fold of Islam.

We are fighting not only for Palestinian independence, but equally important is bring back the Al-Aqsa into the hands of Muslims. Our struggle is not just for a month or two, a year or two years, but we must fight till the end, until the Palestine gets independence and Al-Aqsa back into the hands of Muslims,” he stressed.

The constrution of the Gaza Indonesian Hospital was marred by obstacles, primarily due to fighting between Israel and Hamas and restrictions on imports imposed by Israel and Egypt .

The hospital opened its doors opened on December 27, 2015 and has since been treating more than 250 Patients a day. (L/P008/R07)
