Gaza – Ma'an –
The Palestinian Health Ministry in the Gaza
Strip is considering halting transfers of wounded Palestinians into
Egypt over alleged mishandling of patients.
Officials at the Hamas-run ministry said they are mulling this decision
"due to the fact that the Egyptians deal
with the issue from a security point of view."
"Three injured Palestinians,
Walid Abu Yousuf, Ghassan Abid Rabbu and a child whose identity was not
in Egyptian hospitals at Al-Arish city. They were
supposed to be delivered to Cairo for better treatment, but
unfortunately they were detained at Al-Areish where they died," an
official who spoke on the condition of anonymity told Ma'an.
The Health Ministry sources said that
medics at Al-Arish hospital had received orders not to operate on
injured Palestinians, despite the presence of volunteer
physicians who came to the hospital to help treat Gaza's wounded.
Furthermore, the officials said,
the injured have been subject to unreasonable
searches by the Egyptian security forces at the Rafah crossing.
Egypt began allowing Palestinians wounded in Israel's attacks on the
Gaza Strip across the border for treatment last weekend.
