Because The Pharaoh Has No Balls: Stranded Palestinians at the Egyptian side enter their 4th month of suffering
"ARISH, (PIC)-- The number of Palestinians stranded at the Egyptian side of the borders with the Gaza Strip has risen to 1,400, Egyptian sources announced on Tuesday, adding that they might be transferred next Sunday via Israeli-controlled Oja crossing into Gaza.
A number of those stranded at the Egyptian city of Arish said that they started their fourth month of suffering amidst complete disregard on the part of the Palestinian embassy in Cairo that sent about 20 dollars for each one carrying a Palestinian passport.
They said that among the stranded are 33 heart patients, 12 patients who underwent an open heart surgery, 8 patients suffering kidney failure, 8 cancer patients, five women who gave birth and 70 students in addition to 13 families with their children, 13 teachers and six teams of engineers returning from a training trip in Japan. They noted that a newly born baby died due to poor health care."
