According to a report by India Today, the girl named Aisha a-Lulu, came out of a brain surgery in a hospital in Jerusalem and expressed her wish to see her parents.

But Israeli authorities didn’t grant approval to her parents. They instead approved a stranger to escort Aisha from the blockaded Gaza Strip to the east Jerusalem hospital. After her condition deteriorated on the way, she was returned to Gaza in an unconscious state. A week later, she was dead.

Talking to media, Waseem a-Lulu, Aisha’s father said:

“The most difficult thing is to leave your child in the unknown. Jerusalem is just an hour away, but it feels as though it is another planet.”

A photo of Aisha smiling softly in her hospital bed is going viral on social media with people expressing their dissent over the bureaucracy in conflict-hit Israel and Palestine.
