Israel prevents Gaza mother from accompanying 3YO son to hospital

PNN/ Jerusalem/
The Shin Bet prevented the mother of a three year-old cancer patient in Gaza from accompanying him to Israeli hospitals for treatment, according to an Israeli media source.

Three year-old Loay al-Khodari was eventually accompanied by a foreign lady after an appeal was placed on Facebook, and the boy is now receiving treatment in hospital.

According to Haaretz, the Shin Bet security service has prevented Hanan, the boy’s mother, from escorting her son for a number of months because her family has been linked to Hamas.

Hanan had applied for an escort request for months, but the Shabak has responded by saying her request is “under examination.”
