Israeli doctors refuse to refer Palestinian girl run over by a settler to hospital

Israeli doctors refused to refer a five-year-old Palestinian girl to Isreali hospitals after she was run over by a colonist in the village of Turamah in Hebron, Gulf News has learnt. Sources said the Israeli motorist who ran over the girl reported the accident to Israeli medics but fled the scene immediately. The victim, Shahd Mohammad Ghannam, was crossing the street to her school when the colonist hit her and knocked her down ... When the Israeli medics arrived they administered first aid to the girl but refused to refer her to an Israeli hospital for treatment though she had suffered serious injuries and was in need of hospitalisation. The ambulance, with the medics, left suddenly and the victim's family called for a Palestinian ambulance to rush the girl to Hebron Public Hospital where she landed in the ICU.
