Israel is not allowing a Gaza mother to accompany her 3-year-old son to a hospital in the West Bank city of Nablus for cancer treatment. Security sources told Haaretz that the reason was that she is a first-degree relative of a Hamas member and therefore, may not leave the Gaza Strip. The woman had to resort to Facebook to find eligible unrelated women to accompany her son for medical treatment.
