A seven-year-old Palestinian girl from the Gaza Strip has been reunited with her mother after she was abandoned by her father in Jerusalem on Sunday after receiving medical treatment in an Israeli hospital, the Hebrew news site Walla reported on Monday.

According to the shuttle diver who was transporting the two back to the Erez border crossing, the father had asked for the vehicle to pull over so his daughter could relieve herself. However, after the vehicle stopped, the father opened the door and took off running, leaving his daughter behind.

The young girl was brought to police station, where she was taken care while Israeli authorities arranged her return home to Hamas-ruled Gaza.

The father was found later in the day in central Israel and arrested.
