- Formerly Anti-Israel Medical Journal Dedicates Entire Issue to Israel’s Healthcare System
After publishing a harshly-worded letter critical of the Israel Defense Forces during the 2014 Gaza war, the British medical journal Lancet has dedicated its latest issue to Israel’s healthcare system. The edition published Monday features ten articles showcasing Israeli lifesaving medical devices, detailing groundbreaking genetic research, and highlighting Israeli efforts to treat Syrian refugees injured in the civil war.
Lancet editor Prof. Richard Horton had previously apologized for the letter and promised to publish an edition that would highlight Israel’s contributions to the medical profession. (i24news)
