Sharp increase in Israelis seeking psychological treatment: Media
Israeli media say psychological protection centers in the south of occupied Palestine reported a "dramatic increase" in requests for assistance following Operation Avenging the Free.
Psychological protection centers of the Israeli occupation recorded a sharp increase in the number of those seeking help after Operation Avenging the Free that the Palestinian Resistance launched in response to the Israeli occupation aggression against the Gaza Strip, Israeli media reported on Thursday.
The Israeli Channel 12 said psychological protection centers in the south of occupied Palestine reported a "dramatic increase" in requests for psychological assistance in the illegal settlement of "Sderot" and the occupied city of Askalan.
The channel highlighted that this case is not limited to the south, noting that amid rocket firing during Operation Avenging the Free, it was difficult for illegal Israeli settlers to leave for treatment, and they were treated remotely.
A week ago, Israeli media reported that the percentage of requests for trauma assistance increased by 550% after the illegal settlement of "Rehovot" was targeted by Resistance rockets.
Last week, the media confirmed that one illegal Israeli settler was killed and 15 others were injured as a result of the Palestinian Resistance's rockets that hit "Rehovot" as part of Operation Avenging the Free.
