Cancer death on Gaza Strip

Tag:, , , ,

A young man was barred from leaving the Gaza strip for chemotherapy in Israel and Nael al-Kurdi died as a result.

The signs were great for Mr al-Kurdi with the tumour shrinking by half. In June this year mr al-Kurdi’s luck changed. Hamas took control of Gaza, Israel tightened its blockade and the crossing into Egypt was closed.

Mr al-Kurdi only had one alternative, and that was to seek medical treatment in Israel, only to find he was blocked from entering Israel for treatment on security grounds.
