19-Month-Old Gazan Baby Dies After Israel Refused to Allow Her to Leave for Treatment

HeadlineApr 06, 2022

In Gaza, a 19-month-old baby named Fatima al-Masri has died after waiting for five months for Israeli authorities to give her approval to leave Gaza for medical treatment. Fatima was diagnosed last year with a hole in her heart. Her family had booked medical appointments for her in Jerusalem in December and February, but she was forced to miss both because her family’s request to leave Gaza was “under review.”
