Palestinian child from Gaza dies in Jerusalem alone

Days of Palestine -


Palestinian girl, 5-year-old, identified as Aisha Lulu from Gaza Strip died a lonely death on Friday at a hospital in Jerusalem. 

Local sources said that the Israeli occupation prevented her family from accompanying her during a complex brain medical operation.

The sources added that during the past months, the girl's family (from the Bureij camp) appealed to international and local institutions and the occupation to allow a family member to accompany Aisha on a treatment trip.

Unfortunately, their repeated pleas were rejected on alleged security grounds by the Israeli occupation who refused granting them a permit to travel with the 5 year-old girl. 

All those who witnessed her last moments of life said that she died alone crying.
