Al Mezan Center for Human Rights held Israel accountable for the death of Gaza patient Akram Sultan, on Tuesday, October 18.
62-year-old Akram Ahmed Sultan died after Israel blocked for three times his requests for a permit to leave Gaza to receive life-saving care in Jerusalem, Al Mezan Tweeted.
According to Al Mezan, Sultan was suffering from leukemia, and he had submitted several requests to the Israeli occupation authorities to allow him to pass through the Erez checkpoint. Yet His requests were met with procrastination and delays.
Al Mezan pointed out that Sultan is the sixth patient to lose his life due to Israel’s discriminatory and arbitrary permit system in 2022.
