[ PIC 30/03/2013 – 04:09 PM ]

images_News_2013_03_30_barhoum_300_0[1]GAZA, (PIC)– Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman, lashed out at the Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) for neglecting the treatment of detained cancer patient Maysara Abu Hamdiya.

He said that delaying the treatment of Abu Hamdiya was a crime against humanity that was the latest of IOA crimes against Palestinian prisoners.

Barhoum, in a press release on Saturday, held the IOA fully responsible for the consequences of such a “serious crime”.

The spokesman asked all human rights organizations to end their silence and immediately act to save the lives of thousands of prisoners in Israeli occupation jails.

For his part, Tawfik Abu Naim, the head of the league of prisoners and ex-prisoners, warned of the seriousness of the conditions in Eshel prison after Abu Hamdiya’s health condition seriously deteriorated.

He told the PIC reporter on Saturday that tension was running high in the prison after internees returned their breakfast meal in protest over what happened to Abu Hamdiya.

He said that Abu Hamdiya was in coma and was transferred to ICU, adding that his condition was critical.
