Waed urges human rights groups to visit Israeli jails

GAZA, (PIC)– The Waed society catering for Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails has called on human rights groups to visit those jails especially the Ramle prison hospital to see for themselves the medical neglect and the conditions of those who are permanently held there.

Waed said in a statement on Wednesday that the number of sick detainees was constantly rising amidst growing deliberate medical neglect on the part of the Israeli prison service (IPS).

Recalling that many prisoners died as a result of such policy, the society warned of the recurrence of that phenomenon especially when the IPS imposes absolute secrecy on files of those prisoners.

It called for accelerating surgeries for those in need, pointing out that list of names include one who has been waiting for his turn for surgery for the past three years.

The society blamed the Red Cross and human rights groups for not shedding light on and catering for those cases. It finally invited Palestinian masses to attend its rallies in support of prisoners to be organized next week
