Palestinians stop paying Israeli hospitals for Gaza and West Bank patients

New York Times, February 10, 2009
Scores of Palestinian patients being treated in Israeli hospitals are being sent home because the Palestinian Authority has stopped paying for their treatment. Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem says that for the past week, no payments have come in and Palestinians whose children it is treating have been instructed by Palestinian health officials to place them in facilities in the West Bank, Jordan, or Egypt.
