The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) has announced the death of two cancer patients who were recently flown from Gaza to the UAE to receive treatment.

The Palestinians, aged 38 and 54, were in critical condition, with both suffering from advanced stages of stomach cancer.

"Upon their arrival in the UAE, they were admitted to a specialized health facility for comprehensive treatment. Despite the best efforts of medical professionals, their health deteriorated, leading to their demise," MoHAP said in a statement.

The ministry extended its condolences to the grieving families and reaffirmed its commitment to providing top-tier healthcare services to all patients.
