Israel denies man shot by sniper access to medical treatment

Israel is refusing a Gaza man seriously wounded by sniper fire during recent border protests access to medical treatment in the West Bank, necessary to save his leg from amputation, the Gaza-based Palestinian Authority health official responsible for coordination with Israel told The National on Wednesday.

Hisham Shaath, 25, from the southern Gaza city of Khan Yunis, has been hospitalised at the European hospital there since he was shot in the right thigh on April 15. He is the latest Gazan to have participated in the protests to be denied by Israel transfer for treatment in the West Bank as part of an openly declared punitive policy against the demonstrations, which began on March 30.
