Infant dies in Gaza after PA denies him treatment abroad

Infant died vs PA

Gaza’s Ministry of Health announced on Wednesday the death of a new infant due to the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) procrastination in issuing him a medical referral to be able to travel abroad for treatment.

The Ministry said in a statement that the infant Nafez Khas, who was in a critical condition, died four days after his birth to be the 19th victim of the PA’s decision to halt Gaza patients’ medical referrals.

A human rights center said that the number of the cases allowed to be transferred abroad for treatment was reduced by 75% last month, warning that the lives of thousands of Gazan patients are at risk because of this move.
