Baby dies in Gaza after being denied treatment abroad

July 31, 2008 12:48 P.M. (Updated: July 31, 2008 12:48 P.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - A 3-month-old baby, Ahmad Eid Abu Omar, died in Deir Al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip, after being prevented from traveling abroad for treatment, the Popular Committee Against the Blockade claimed on Thursday.

The committee says that this loss brings the death toll caused by the prevention of treatment abroad by the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip to 221. Abu Omar is said to have died from heart failure.

The blockade, which has prevented the import of medical supplies and stopped many Gazans from receiving medical treatment outside the Gaza Strip, is now in its fourteenth month.
