Head of Hamas Political Bureau Ismail Haniyeh has sent a letter of condolences to the Medical Emergency Rescue Committee (MER-C) in Indonesia over the death of its founder Joserizal Jurnalis, who passed away on Monday.

“We, in Hamas, received with deep sorrow the news of the death of Dr. Joserizal Jurnalis, director of MER-C in Indonesia,” Haniyeh said in the letter.

Haniyeh offered his sincere condolences to MER-C and the Jurnalis family, as well as to the Indonesian people, on the death of Dr. Joserizal. 

The Hamas chief expressed his gratitude and appreciation to the deceased’s role and efforts to supervise the construction of the Indonesia Hospital in northern Gaza, which has been providing medical and healthcare services to Gaza’s residents since its inauguration.

The Medical Emergency Rescue Committee (MER-C) helped funding and supervised the construction of the Indonesian Hospital in Beit Lahia, north of Gaza.
