Sick Palestinian Elderly Delayed at Israeli Checkpoint, Dies before Reaching Hospital

NABLUS, June 25, 2014 – (WAFA) – A sick Palestinian elderly, who was on her way to hospital  for sharp chest pains, died Wednesday after being delayed by Israeli forces at a checkpoint erected by the Israeli troops at the eastern entrance of Beit Dajan, a village  to the east of Nablus.

Amneh Haj-Muhammad, 62, suffered from acute chest pain, and, as a result, she was rushed in a taxi by her husband and children to the National Hospital in Nablus. However, the taxi was stopped by the soldiers at the entrance of the village for more than half an hour, leading to her death before she could reach the public hospital in Nablus, said Radwan Haj-Muhammad, a member of Amneh’s family.
