The Augusta Victoria Hospital in Jerusalem, one of the major hospitals treating Palestinian Arabs, has announced that it can no longer accept patients because of the huge sums of money owed to it by the Palestinian Authority.

The hospital issued a press release today saying that it can no longer receive patients. It has exhausted its stores of medicines needed to do basic medical care.

The hospital urgently requires 23 million shekels ($6.4M) to cover the purchase of medicines and vital treatments especially for those suffering from cancer and kidney disease.

The Palestinian Authority owes the hospital NIS 150 million ($41 million) and the debt has been accumulating at the rate of $4 million every month.
