Patient prisoners to declare hunger strike

[ PIC 31/05/2013 – 12:25 PM ]

images_News_2013_05_31_prisoner-chained-to-bed_300_0[1]RAMALLAH, (PIC)– A group of Palestinian patient prisoners in Israeli jails have declared their intention to go on hunger strike next Saturday protesting the Israeli deliberate medical negligence.

Palestine center for prisoners studies confirmed in a statement issued on Thursday that 7 Palestinian patient prisoners held in Nafha prison affirmed their intention to declare hunger strike in protest against Israeli Prison Service’s deliberate medical negligence and ill-treatment.

The center expressed its deep concern over the Palestinian patient prisoners’ health conditions in light of the Israeli illegal practices against them, calling on international institutions to expose the Israeli violations of the international laws.

Figures at the end of March this year showed there are 1,200 patient prisoners in need of treatment; 85 suffering from various disabilities and 25 with cancer. The number of martyrs, who have died in prison, including recently Maysara Abu Hamdiyeh who had cancer, is 204.
