40 Israeli Doctors Forbidden
By IDF To Help Palestinians

From Gush Shalom (Israeli Peace Bloc)

Reported on the Israeli radio news; a delegtion of forty Israeli doctors, organised by the Tel-Aviv-based Physicians for Human Rights, was stopped at the IDF roadblock near Hawara, in the Nablus Region, and forbidden to proceed to the village of Beit Furik. There, they had intended to treat patients who could not get to the hospital in Nablus becuse of the tight closure imposed on that city. But due to the same closure, the army said, "humanitarian delegations are only allowed to go into the Nablus Area only by prior appointment"; for lack of that, the doctors were turned back.
