[ PIC 16/04/2013 – 07:23 PM ]

images_News_2013_04_16_prisoners11_300_0[1]RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The head of the Follow up committee of Prisoners’ Affairs, Amin Shauhan, confirmed that more than 1000 Palestinian prisoners suffer different illnesses including 25 cancer patients.

The prisoners face deliberate medical neglect by the Israeli prison services aiming to assassinate them as what happened with the martyr Ashraf Abu Dra’a, Arafat Jaradat and Maysara Abu Hamdiya, he added.

He pointed out that the occupation procrastinates in dealing with the hunger striker Samer al-Issawi’s demands after failing in his deportation to European countries.

Shauhan called on all international institutions and human rights organizations to bear their responsibility towards the prisoners’ issue especially the hunger strikers.
