Father says denied permit to visit wife and newborns

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian father says Israel has denied him a permit to visit his wife and newborn triplets in a Jerusalem hospital.

Safi Abdul Hamid Al-Tamimi said his wife gave birth five days ago in Al-Makassed Hospital, where she was transferred from Ramallah due to complications during labor.

Israeli soldiers stopped Al-Tamimi at Qalandiya checkpoint, which separates the two cities, and refused to allow him to accompany his wife, who was in labor at the time, because he did not have a permit to enter Jerusalem.

He added that he has since tried to get a permit but he was rejected without explanation.
