Israeli soldiers deny medical help to boy bitten by snake


NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A young boy bitten by a snake in Nablus on Sunday was refused medical attention by Israeli soldiers manning a checkpoint, the boy's father said.

Tareq Abu Aoun told Ma'an that his son Muhammad was bitten by the snake near the Hamra checkpoint in Nablus and lost consciousness.

He asked Israeli soldiers to allow him to pass the checkpoint and call an ambulance, but they refused.

The soldiers told Abu Aoun that he was obstructing the checkpoint and prevented him from queuing to pass through.

An ambulance from the Palestinian Red Crescent managed to access the area after an hour and a half and transferred the boy to Rafida hospital, where he is said to be in a critical condition. more
