The parents of captive Bahar, held in Beersheba jail, expressed in a statement to Ahrar center their deep concern about the health status of their patient son.

Amer’s family said that two years ago he started to feel stomachache that has later developed and worsened. The Israeli prison doctors decided to transfer him to Ramle prison hospital where he underwent an appendectomy.

The family asserted that after the surgery their son’s condition has deteriorated, and that the doctors simply told him that they were giving him the wrong medication.

The Prison administration has continued its policy of medical neglect against the patient captive, which has aggravated his illness, Ahrar center stated.

Amer Bahar was kidnapped by Israeli soldiers in July 19, 2004, while he was heading to the mosque for prayer. He was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment, three years after his arrest.

Fouad Khuffash director of the Center called for opening an investigation into Israel’s violations against Palestinian patient prisoners in its jails.
