6-year-old Palestinian dies after Israel denies him Access to Treatment outside Gaza

The family presented documents to the Israeli occupation authorities to obtain permits to leave the besieged enclave through the Beit Hanoun (Erez) Crossing. Their request was denied after the occupation said it had carried out an “investigation” and determined there were “security reasons” why the child could not leave Gaza for treatment.

Farouq’s father holds a permit allowing him to leave Gaza each day to access work in Israel, however this did not afford the family any protection from the arbitrary accusations of “security threats”.
