On 15 December, the family submitted a request through the Palestinian Authority for a permit to enter Israel for the youth and his mother so that he could undergo medical treatment at the East Jerusalem hospital. The day of the appointment arrived, but the permit did not, according to the testimony the youth gave to B'Tselem. Following a prolonged wait, and the intervention of Physicians for Human Rights-Israel, the permit arrived on the evening of 12 January, almost a month after the request had been made, and 16 days after his scheduled admission date at Augusta Victoria Hospital.
