The invisible human- by Manal Timraz

My beloved cousin Maher Timraz died 2 days ago in Hebron without knowing that we were only 5 minutes away from each other 😦
Let me tell you how that can happen. When you are Palestinian and happen to be living in besieged Gaza but unfortunate enough to get a minor appendix infection and your gazan hospital does not have the medical equipment to treat you, then you only have one of two options, Either to Die on your way to the West Bank to the nearest better equipped hospital in Hebron while waiting for Israel to grant you a LIFE permission, or to Die on your way to Egypt while waiting for Hamas and Egypt to let you LIVE longer!! in Maher’s case he died a few minutes before reaching Al Mizaan Hospital in Hebron because of a delay from the Israelis to grant him permission to leave Gaza!! Another beloved member of my family is now ADDED to my list of SORROWS! Another NEEDLESS loss of a 32 year old loving Dad to 5 and 6 year old children!! Humanity is still in PAIN!!
