Original title: ‘Gazans pay doctors to declare them ill’,


"’Recently there has been an increase in the exploitation of Israel’s humanitarian policy by way of fraudulent medical permits in return for bribes to doctors in the Gaza Strip,’ a Shin Bet spokesman told The Jerusalem Post. ‘This, plus the requests of terrorist activists to enter Israel for medical treatment, increases the danger to state security’"

"The statement came in response to the latest allegations by Physicians for Human Rights, which charged that since the beginning of April, the Shin Bet has been preventing 12 new cancer patients from receiving life-saving treatment in Israel. In addition to these 12, the Shin Bet had for several weeks been preventing dozens more, including cancer and heart patients, from passing through Israel on their way to treatment in Jordan and Egypt."
