Israel has suspended the social and medical benefits of at least 11 Palestinian political activists and their families as well as former prisoners who live in East Jerusalem. 

The wife of Majed Al-Jouaba, a resident of Jerusalem’s Old City, discovered the National Insurance Institute had suspended her benefits when she went for a blood test on Wednesday as part of a routine checkup during her pregnancy. According to her husband, the nurse at the health clinic told her she could not receive the results of her test since she was “blocked on the computer system.”
