“Harsh but fair,” Israeli human rights activists and activists on Sunday accused Israel’s health ministry of trying to silence them by blocking them from accessing the health system’s web portal, which has become the main avenue for activists seeking information about health conditions and services.
A few hours after activists were able to access the ministry’s online database, which tracks health conditions across the country, it became apparent that the system had become inaccessible for some members of the public.
Activists and human rights advocates who had been using the website to search for conditions and access services said they had received no response.
One activist, Yael Wieser, a mother of two, was unable to enter the website, and the site also refused to display her name and email address.
“I cannot go to the website,” she said in a telephone interview from her home in the occupied West Bank.
The ministry said in an email to The Jerusalem Mail that the site is not currently used for administrative purposes and that access is limited to those who have been granted a permit to visit.
The ministry, however, did not respond to questions on why access to the site was restricted or why the ministry had not given an explanation for blocking activists from accessing its website.
In a statement on Sunday, the ministry said that it would not allow access to health information to “those who have received a permit for this purpose” and that it will update the system to accommodate those who were granted permits.
The website’s administrators, meanwhile, said they were working to provide an update on the status of the system within a week.
The website was not available for public viewing, but the site includes information about the number of people receiving care from the health ministry, how many are hospitalized and the number who have died.
In addition, the site lists the number and age of the patients who are admitted to the health care system each day.
The numbers were provided to The Israel Times by an Israeli activist who has been using an online platform for accessing health information.
An Israeli activist on Monday called on the government to open the site and allow access.
“The system is closed, and we will never have access to it again,” the activist said.
“This is not fair.”
“They should stop this kind of policy and open the website.
If they do, they will be able to explain it and give people the information they need,” he said.
Another activist, Nour Malek, said she was surprised that the ministry was so concerned with restricting access to its website, saying that if the system were open, it would be used to inform about the conditions of those in need.
“I am a mother who suffers from an incurable illness,” Malek said.
The health system had told her that her daughter’s cancer was terminal, but she did not have the time to visit the doctors, she said.
The health ministry said the problem had been resolved and that all users who were able had been given an email address for further assistance.
The minister’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The system, which is used to provide health information and treatment for people with severe illnesses and who are on the “short list” of patients who receive treatment, has become an issue in recent months.
Last year, a report by the Israeli human right group B’Tselem alleged that the health and social services ministry had systematically discriminated against Israeli Arab citizens and Palestinians in its treatment of them, with some Palestinians receiving treatment in hospitals while others had to live on the streets or in a tent.
The Health Ministry’s website was opened in 2014, following a public outcry and the launch of a new website that provides more detailed information about conditions and medical treatment in Israel.
Since then, the government has sought to expand its website to include information about various aspects of life in Israel, including the country’s history, geography and population.
In January, the health department published an interactive map that showed which parts of Israel were located in which parts.
The map also showed that Israel’s borders with Jordan and Syria had changed, meaning that parts of the country that were previously part of Israel are now under Jordanian sovereignty.
Since its opening, Israel’s ministry of health has also launched several initiatives to improve the health of the Israeli public.
The government’s health information system has been updated to include the latest information about disease statistics and the health status of residents, as well as information about local laws that affect health.
In April, the country launched a new national health system with new data sharing, improved access to information and better coordination between health services and the ministries of public health and health services.
The government has also made efforts to make health information available in a more accessible format.
In December, the Health Ministry launched an online health service that is open to the public, allowing users to review medical information and receive alerts when there is an increase in cases of illnesses or diseases.
