A walkout of medical staff throughout Gaza has strained services at hospitals and clinics throughout the territory, the latest in a series of crippling strikes that are deepening bitter divisions between Hamas and the rival Fatah movement. The strike has forced non-complying doctors to pull double shifts and left residents struggling for treatment. The Fatah-dominated Medical Workers' Union called the strike last week to demand Hamas reinstate workers allegedly fired for their political loyalties. Hamas has accused Fatah of calling the walkout at state-run hospitals and clinics as a political ploy. But it has aggravated the crisis by shutting down the private clinics run by striking doctors.
