OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli Jalbo prison administration refused the entry of a specialized medical team into the facility to check up Jerusalemite prisoner Essam Jandal.

A statement by the Palestinian prisoner’s association on Friday said that Jandal, who has been in captivity since 1986, was suffering from numerous diseases in the heart and in both his eyes.

It said that Jandal sent a message to the association detailing his suffering and worsening health condition despite consuming 13 pills daily.

He said that he needs urgent medical checkup and care, adding that he should see a doctor to determine the right prescription for his illness.
