RAMALLAH, (PIC)– A Russian doctor working for the Israeli Ramla prison infirmary blatantly labeled ill prisoner Dirar Abu Sisi as “a terrorist who should die”, the Palestinian prisoner society (PPS) said on Sunday.

The PPS reported the incident after its lawyer recently visited prisoner Abu Sisi in Ashkelon solitary prison.

Abu Sisi, who speaks the Russian language, told the lawyer that about three weeks ago, he was taken to Ramla jail infirmary, particularly to the hematology department where a doctor said loudly in Russian, “where is this terrorist who should die and not be treated.”

Immediately, Abu Sisi responded to the Russian doctor forcing him to feel ashamed of what he had uttered.

“Do you think I will allow a hateful doctor like you to treat me?” Abu Sisi told the doctor.

“I am one of the natives of this country and you are an outsider,” he kept lashing out at the doctor who found himself in the corner.

After a while, the doctor started to justify what he said and then apologized, but Abu Sisi refused to receive any medical treatment from him.

In another incident, the Israeli jailers locked up Uday Kilani in solitary confinement to punish him for his hunger strike since October 23.

The Palestinian prisoner society said the jailers transferred Kilani from Megiddo prison to an isolation cell in Jalama jail as a punitive measure for his hunger strike.

Kilani has been administratively detained for 20 months without any guilt or trial, and recently an Israeli court approved the extension of his detention for more four months.

“I will never give up my hunger strike whatever it costs me, and my spirits are very high,” the prisoner told the lawyer who was sent by the prisoner society.

“On Torture” is an edited volume of essays by Palestinian, Israeli and international legal and medical experts and practitioners based on presentations that they gave during a workshop held in Jerusalem in April 2011 entitled, “Securing Accountability for Torture and Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment (CIDT) in Israel: New Trends and Comparative Lessons”.

The essayists explore the history of torture in Israel, the daily challenges that practitioners face in seeking accountability for torture and CIDT in Israel, and the changing face of torture.
