Tubas protesters demand PA opens hospital

Sept. 8, 2013 6:17 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 9, 2013 1:35 P.M.)
JENIN (Ma'an) -- Dozens of protesters on Sunday demanded the Palestinian Authority open a recently-constructed hospital in Tubas.

Protesters held signs condemning the delay in opening the Turkish Hospital, which has been ready to open for 10 months.

The hospital was funded by the Turkish government, and the corner stone was laid in 2008. Construction began in 2010, and the hospital was ready to operate in November 2012.

It will be the first governmental hospital in Tubas, a district with over 60,000 residents.

"We have been receiving promises by the government to meet our demands," said Khalid Mansur, spokesman of the el-Fara refugee camp in Tubas. "Our demands have not been met."
