Al-Khuffash: Captives in Israeli jails exposed to slow death

[ 31/03/2013 – 08:50 PM ]

images_News_2013_03_31_prisoner_300_0[1]NABLUS, (PIC)– Fuad Al-Khuffash, director of Ahrar Center for Prisoners’ Studies and human rights, stressed that the sick prisoners in Israeli jails are exposed to slow death, due to the continuation of the policy of medical neglect against them.

Khuffash’s statements came during his speech about the serious health condition of prisoner Maysara Abu Hamdiya, who has throat cancer and who has been recently transferred to Soroka prison hospital.

The human rights center director denounced the absence of serious efforts to support the prisoners and the official and popular inaction regarding the conditions of the patient detainees and the continuation of detaining the prisoners in Israeli jails for long years.

He demanded making more serious efforts to release the prisoners and expose the Israeli occupation crimes inside jails.

He stressed that the silence of the Palestinian factions and civil society organizations regarding the captives’ issue would encourage the Israeli prison administration to continue its attacks against the prisoners in the occupation jails.
