      Israel, PA Reach Compromise Over 'State of Palestine' Papers

      Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) have reached a compromise in a dispute that saw medical patients from Gaza denied entry to Israel for treatment because their travel documents said "State of Palestine," officials told AFP on Wednesday.

      Earlier Wednesday, a senior PA official said the "Israelis have prevented 70 sick people who need to go to Israeli hospitals from crossing Erez because it said 'State of Palestine' on their transfer request".
