Israel blocks money to Gaza’s disabled - Injured workers denied benefit payments   by Jonathan Cook in Nazareth

Yunis al Masri was luckier than his two brothers from Gaza.
Although the truck that ploughed into their car as they travelled to work in Israel 24 years ago killed Jaber and Kamal instantly, Mr al Masri survived with shattered bones, internal bleeding and brain damage.

 
Today, aged 49 and after many operations, he has difficulty walking and problems remembering to do things.
Any hope of working again was crushed in 1985 amid the car wreckage.
