Saifuldeen Badr, 22, was shocked when the Israeli occupation denied him entry to have an operation. He was informed that he is a high security risk.

The Israeli excuses are used to arbitrarily manipulate the situation of sick individuals who need treatment outside of Gaza, especially those who are suffering a serious deterioration of their health.

Saifuldeen was in a car accident last month that led to his leg being shattered, as well as injuries to his ligaments and veins, requiring surgical intervention and medical equipment that can only be found outside of Gaza.

However, due to Israel denying him entry and the closure of the Rafah crossing, his situation gets worse by the day.

He told MEMO that he is suffering from deterioration in his health, as the cells in his leg have started to die due to the fact that blood is not reaching the area. He said that two of his toes were amputated and it is only getting worse.

The doctors have told him that he has very bad circulation in his leg and therefore the dead parts need to be amputated from time to time, meaning that his leg is being cut off piecemeal.

His father says that they have filed a request to the Israeli authorities and contacted human rights organisations to interfere in the matter, however they were surprised that Israel considers him a serious security risk. This is even though he has no political affiliations.

His father believes that this excuse is not legitimate and can only be seen as an Israeli policy of exploitation and torture of ill individuals in the Gaza Strip.

Video of the Week New Clashes Erupt Between Israeli Security Forces, Muslim Worshippers

Temple Mount temporarily closed to Jewish visitors after clashes with police

The Temple Mount was temporarily closed to Jewish visitors on Wednesday at the order of Jerusalem District Commander Yoram Halevy after Jews broke visitation rules at the holy site, police said. The Jewish visitors were expelled from the compound for bringing sacred books to the Mount and trying to pray there. After one of the individuals was cautioned, another took out a holy book, and the group was expelled. Meanwhile, renewed clashes erupted between protesters and Israeli security forces near the Lion's Gate in the Old City, where police used stun grenades against the demonstrators. A regular dynamic has developed involving clashes between Palestinians and Israel Police over the past several days near the Lion's Gate. Dozens of Palestinians are present at the site on a regular basis, urging devotion to the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount and condemning Israel. During Muslim prayer times, particularly the midday and nighttime prayers, hundreds and sometimes even thousands have been gathering there.

There have been outbreaks of violence during these periods, including stone-throwing or physical confrontations with the police. In most of these incidents, the police have been using stun grenades and sponge-tipped bullets to disperse the crowds. In a number of cases, journalists in the area have also suffered violence at the hands of the police. On Tuesday, Hassan Shaalan, a reporter for the Ynet news website, was struck by a policeman even after he identified himself as a member of the press. A group of Jerusalem-based journalists released a statement of condemnation over the incident and called on the police to permit reporters to do their jobs. The Jerusalem Police responded: "This involved an incident that took place in the course of violent disturbances of the peace that occurred in Jerusalem while the police were acting to remove the demonstrators from the street after some of them refused to vacate. The forces working on the scene are under constant threat to their lives.
