NABLUS, (PIC)– The Israeli prison authority (IPA) has rejected a year and a half of requests by a Palestinian captive for treatment, the Tadhamon (Solidarity) international human rights foundation said.

Mohammed Adnan Abu Haddaf, 27, has for one and a half years been suffering from rheumatoid, a sickness characterized with inflammation of the joints accompanied by severe pains during movement.

Refusing to have a doctor examine him, the IPA has instead given him varied painkillers claiming that his turn for treatment has not yet come, said Tadhamon researcher Ahmed al-Beitawi.

According to Beitawi, there are more than 1,300 Palestinian patients held in Israeli prisons.

The IPA has a systematic policy of medical neglect and postponing the treatment of sick captives.
