Gaza father rejects Israeli treatment for son

Bereaved father refuses to use permit to take disabled son to Tel Aviv for treatment in protest over deadly offensive.

    A Palestinian father has refused to take his son, who suffers from brain damage to Israel for medical treatment after his other son was killed during Israel's recent war on the Gaza Strip.

    Ahmad Shaheen says that in protest over the deaths of Palestinian civilians, including hundreds of children, during Israel's war on the Gaza Strip, he will not use a permit that allows him to take his son, Othman, to a hospital in Tel Aviv for treatment.
