Days of Palestine, west Bank -Israeli occupation authorities banned last week Palestinian elderly woman from travelling to Amman to receive urgent treatment.
Zubaida al-Awawdeh, 89, from the occupied West Bank city of Al-Khalil, is suffering from several chronic diseases; she recently had a stroke and from time to time she falls into a coma.
Her family contacted a Jordanian hospital requesting urgent treatment. She applied for and obtained a travel permit; however, when she was on her way to Jordan on Thursday, the Israeli security services told her she was banned from leaving the West Bank.
Her daughter Intisar said: “My mother is motionless. She cannot serve herself and is even unable to chew her food; however, the occupation decided to ban her from travelling for treatment.”
Intisar said that her mother was due to meet her brother, Salah. “We did our best to arrange for a meeting between my mother and my brother, Salah, in Jordan during the trip for treatment.”
Salah was released from the Israeli occupation prisons in 2011 and expelled to Turkey. His mother hopes to hug him before she dies.
Intisar said she was surprised by the Israeli ban because the Palestinian Red Crescent had made the travel arrangements with the Israeli occupation and Jordanian authorities before the travel permit was applied for.
