#PalHunger | Female captives threaten to go on hunger strike

[ PIC 14/05/2013 – 08:54 AM ]

images_News_2013_05_14_jarboni_300_0[1]RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Palestinian female prisoners in Israeli occupation jails have threatened to go on hunger strike to protest medical neglect against their oldest serving prisoner Leena Jarboni.

The Palestinian prisoner society said in a statement on Monday that Jarboni was suffering acute pain, adding that she is in need of urgent surgery to remove a gallstone.

It said that prisoners asked for a doctor but when that did not work they started returning meals until the administration allowed her to be examined and the doctor said she was in need of surgery.

However, the society said, the prison administration told Jarboni that she had to wait for her turn to undergo the operation, which could mean waiting for several months.

The society also quoted the prisoners as complaining of the spread of rats inside their jail cells and of the spread of diseases as a result.
