6-day-old newborn pronounced dead in Gaza as PA denies him treatment

Six-day-old Ali Fadi

A Palestinian baby breathed his last at al-Shifaa Medical Center in Gaza Strip after the Palestinian Authority (PA) failed to provide him with urgent treatment outside the blockaded enclave.

The Palestinian Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said six-day-old Ali Fadi died as a result of the PA’s dragging of its feet over incessant appeals to transfer him to another hospital outside Gaza.

On Sunday al-Qidra sounded alarm bells over the fatal cardiovascular disorders endured by the newborn and launched calls for an urgent intervention.

According to al-Qidra, 18 Palestinians died in Gaza after the PA denied them much-needed referrals.

A couple of days, earlier Palestinian citizen Hasan al-Dahshan was pronounced dead in the coastal enclave due to the same reason.
