The child, Fuad Swerih, 5, suffered respiratory issues, and Israeli prevented his transfer to hospitals outside the besieged and war- torn Gaza Strip.

Swerih is from Al Nusseirat refugee camp, in central Gaza.

The doctors were trying to transfer him to an Israeli hospital but Israel rejected all applications.

There are hundreds of patients who are facing the same fate while Israeli is refusing to allow them medical treatment in Israeli hospital or elsewhere.

The ongoing siege on Gaza and the war left the hospitals and medical centers lacking the main medical supplies and equipment.
