Edinburgh: The First Minister of Scotland has declared that Scotland will provide shelter for the people of war-torn Gaza. In a statement to the media, Scotland’s First Minister, Hamza Yousaf, expressed his commitment to treating wounded children, women, and men to whatever extent possible.
The First Minister has called on the British government to arrange the evacuation of injured civilians from the Gaza Strip and has appealed to play a role in providing medical aid to those affected.
He mentioned that his sister’s husband, who is a doctor in Gaza, has witnessed horrifying scenes of mass casualties and has highlighted the shortage of medical supplies in hospitals. Doctors and nurses are faced with the extremely challenging task of deciding who to treat and who to let die, due to the shortage of resources. He emphasized that such a situation cannot be allowed to continue.
The First Minister added that in the past, the people of Scotland have opened their hearts and homes to refugees. People from various countries, including Syria and Ukraine, sought refuge in Scotland.
Scotland’s decision to provide shelter and support to the victims of the Gaza conflict underscores the importance of international solidarity during times of crisis. The world watches as nations come together to provide assistance to those in dire need.
