On Wednesday, 25 October 2017, Abdulqader Abdallah Al Najili, 65, died while in the European Gaza Hospital. He had obtained Form No. 1 as well as a referral scheduled on 29 June 2017 to Augusta Victoria Hospital in Jerusalem to receive treatment for tumors on his lungs, which spread to his kidney and bones. However, his request for crossing permission remained “under security consideration”. A new appointment at Augusta Victoria was scheduled to 29 September 2017, but the permission request was still receiving the same result until Abdulqader’s death in the European Gaza Hospital.
