Hadassah refused to let GPO film Manasra, was overruled

Hadassah Hospital staff initially refused to let a government camera crew enter Manasra’s room, but was issued an order by Health Minister Yaakov Litzman to give them permission, the NRG news site reports.

The hospital refused to allow the cameramen in because the family of the 13-year-old Palestinian boy refused, the site says, but in the end the GPO published the film.

“Abbas and the family of the terrorist cooperated in order to perpetrate a falsehood against Israel,” Litzman says in response to NRG’s query. “[Abbas] claimed that the boy was dead, and the family refused to let him be filmed, supposedly for the sake of privacy and because he’s a minor.”
