NABLUS, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) refused to allow treatment of Dr. Abdulsattar Qassem, a lecturer of political science at Najah university, in Jerusalem.
He said in a terse statement on Monday that the IOA refused to give him permission to enter Jerusalem for medical treatment.
He added that his request for treatment at Makased hospital was turned down for “security reasons”.
Qassem said that he asked for a similar permission a few weeks ago but was also rejected, adding that doctors had recommended his treatment in Jerusalem due to presence of better treatment for him there.
