Hadassah Says
Report Wrong

Jerusalem (JTA)
Hadassah has denied a report
in the Los Angeles Times
alleging that Arab patients
are turned away from its
hospitals in Israel.
Dr. Samuel Penchas, direc-
tor general of the Hadassah
Medical Organization, called
the report "a seriously mis-

Tuesday to Secretary-General
Javier Perez de Cuellar.
Nasser al-Kidwa, the acting
head of the mission office,
wrote that the situation in
the "Palestinian territory oc-
cupied by Israel" has
deteriorated as the result of
"additional repressive
measures against our people."
Al-Kidwa cited the deaths
of three Palestinian teenagers
over the weekend and said 55
Palestinians had been killed
since December.
The PLO is seeking a state-

Israeli policies and practices
against the Arab residents of
the territories.
