Miral, the 10-year-old Gazan cancer patient whose parents weren’t allowed to be with her in a Nablus hospital, died last weekend. Now Israel is keeping another young Palestinian, who has leukemia, from receiving vital treatment.
A 10-year-old Palestinian girl suffering from leukemia is undergoing chemotherapy in a Nablus hospital by herself, because Israel won’t allow her parents out of Gaza to be with her. And she’s not the only patient in that situation. Read the facts & contact Congress…
The Israeli forces commit 600 violations against journalists this year, remove residential Palestinian tents, Israeli soldiers abduct two teens & a cancer patient … Israeli soldiers abduct fishermen & two Palestinian siblings … Israel’s deportation of Human Rights worker upheld by Israeli Supreme Court , etc.
3-year-old Louay was not allowed to have his mother present for his chemo treatments in Nablus because she is a “first-degree relative of a Hamas member.” But following widespread reporting, Louay’s mother was informed that she will be allowed to join him.
With many thanks to the Goldin family – whose son’s remains are being held by Hamas – Israel is withholding humanitarian exit permits, especially to Gazans “related to Hamas members.” This leaves little Louay without a relative for his trips to Nablus for chemo.
Another Gazan shot by Israeli forces while participating in the Great March has died… meanwhile, Gaza cancer patients suffer and die as Israel prevents medicines from entering Gaza, and prevents patients from going abroad for treatment.
Despite official reports by the Red Cross and a prison doctor, Israel did not permit Hussein Hosni Atallah necessary treatment for his cancer. Rights groups charge that the Israeli Prison Service (IPS) has adopted a policy of deliberate medical neglect against prisoners and detainees.
