Israel approves medical transfer of Palestinian child from Gaza

July 29, 2018 12:42 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 1, 2018 11:42 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian General Authority for Civil Affairs announced on Saturday that it was able to obtain the approval from Israel to transfer a Palestinian child from the besieged Gaza Strip into the northern occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian General Authority for Civil Affairs said in a statement that the medical condition of the Palestinian child, Khaled Abu Sahloul, requires a kidney transplant.

Hussein al-Sheikh, Minister of Palestinian Civil Affairs, said he moved quickly in attempt to obtain approval from Israel and followed the case of Sahloul up until his transfer on Sunday.

Sources added that Israel approved the transfer of the Palestinian child along with his mother, who is the kidney donor for her son, to receive necessary medical treatment.

In addition, Sahloul’s mother has been rejected several times, under the pretext of security reasons, preventing her from being transferred to the northern West Bank to undergo the parent-to-child kidney transplant.

Both the child and the mother are expected to fully recover after the transplant.
