JENIN, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) refused to transfer the prisoner leader in Hamas movement, Sheikh Abdul-Jabbar Jarar, 46, to the hospital, despite the doctors’ recommendations that he needs an emergency surgery.

The wife of the captive Jarar said that her husband suffers from chronic heart disease, stressing that the Israeli prison administration does not bother for his deteriorated health condition, and procrastinated in transferring him to Ramle prison hospital for conducting a surgery.”

She noted that his health situation has worsened when the Israeli authorities have renewed his administrative detention, despite the Israeli appeal court’s decision to release him.

She added that they refused to treat or release him. “There was an attempt to provide the necessary treatment for him, but they refused, despite his suffering, especially after declaring his hunger strike with the prisoners,” she explained.

Prisoner Jarar’s wife appealed to humanitarian and international institutions to bear their responsibility towards her husband, especially that he suffers from a serious life-threatening condition.
