Police seek critically injured Palestinian at al-Makassed hospital, try to seize his bed

On 21 July ‘17, dozens of Israeli police raided al-Makassed hospital in East Jerusalem seeking to arrest a critically injured Palestinian. B’Tselem found that armed officers entered various wards. Officers tried to seize the man’s bed on the way to surgery and pushed medical staff and persons protecting him. The man died meanwhile. Such violent, life-endangering conduct cannot be justified. The police can use other means, without harming staff or patients or violating the convention that medical staff and clinics are a safe haven.

    I don’t believe there are any “safe havens” left for Palestinians. The Zionists have no humanity and would prefer that the Doctors and nurses didn’t save them. There is no other country in the world, where this would be exceptable. The Palestinians aren’t even safe from the Zionists when they are dying in hospital.
