MSF Reports on Damage to Palestinians’ Psychological Health


Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) reports that as the Israeli offensive continues in Gaza, clashes in the West Bank, on top of several weeks of raids and arrests by Israeli forces, are taking a heavy toll on the psychological wellbeing of Palestinians. According to the organisation:

“Between mid-June and mid-July, MSF mental health teams provided psychological support to 1,146 people in Hebron and the surrounding areas. Anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, psychosomatic problems and feelings of harassment are the most common problems experienced by patients.” This video features a report on the impact the current conflict has had on the psychological health of Palestinians in recent months.
