Two children died and others are endangered due to a Palestinian Authority Health Ministry Policy. On Dec. 6, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights released the following statement:
“The Palestinian Center for Human Rights condemns the decision by the Palestinian Ministry of Health to decrease transfers of patients with serious health conditions to Israeli hospitals. This decision has stopped the transfer of dozens of patients, 90 percent of them cancer patients, whose treatment is not available in Gaza. Two children died as they urgently needed advanced medical treatment, but the Ministry of Health transferred them to hospitals that cannot treat their diseases.”
Golda Meir, the former Prime Minister of Israel, once said that there will be peace between the Arabs and the Israelis when the Arab mothers love their children more than they hate the Israelis. Unfortunately, that day has not arrived.
