JENIN, (PIC)– Relatives of a Palestinian prisoner in Israeli occupation jails appealed to human rights groups to intervene and pressure the Israeli authorities into allowing a liver surgery for their sick son.

The family in Jenin refugee camp said that Jawad Taleb, 20, was in urgent need of a surgery to his liver after his health deteriorated. They said that the Israeli prison administration was delaying treatment of Taleb, who has been held in custody for the past two months in Megiddo jail.

In another similar incident, the Palestinian prisoner’s association in Tobas urged human rights groups to save the life of 28-year-old Abdulsalam Bani Odeh, from Tamon, who is serving a 28-year sentence in Shatta jail.

It said in a press release that Bani Odeh every now and then suffers difficulty in breathing and loss of consciousness and is in need of urgent treatment, accusing the prison administration to deliberately neglecting his condition.
