“Kidney patient refused assistance at Rafah border” say International Movement to Open the Border (IMORB)

July 10, 2009

The following message was received from the International Movement to Open the Rafah Border at 15.05 today:

“There’s a very sick Palestinian woman lying on the ground in front of Rafah gate. She has kidney problems and needs a kidney transplant very soon, and as it can not be done in Egypt now for Palestinians , nor can Egypt allow her to travel abroad and have it somewhere else, the woman needs to return NOW to Gaza so she can be treated in Israel or travel to another country.

If this woman dies we’ll all going to sue the Egyptian government. They told them at the gate, including the woman’s family, let her die, we do not care and the border is closed” (Statement by IMORB).
