images_News_2013_06_01_prisoner_300_0[1]GAZA, (PIC)– Family of prisoner Murad Abu Milaq, aged 34, expressed deep concern about their patient son’s life as his health condition has been deteriorating due to the policy of medical neglect in the Israeli jails.

The captive Murad Abu Milaq was arrested in 2001, and is serving a sentence of 22 years on charges of resisting the occupation.

His father told PIC’s correspondent that his son’s health condition has started to deteriorate in 2007 when he began to suffer from gut rot, as well as other diseases.

He said after the prisoners’ mass hunger strike, Murad underwent a surgery to remove 40 cm of the large intestines and 50 cm of the small intestines. However, the Israeli prison administration deliberately kept on a part of the rotten intestine, and his suffering continued, he added.

Murad also suffers from partial disability in his left leg, in which he was shot by Israeli soldiers before his arrest.

The captive’s father asserted that his son’s illness is exacerbating, in light of the policy of medical neglect in Israeli prisons.

He has also denounced the inaction of the charitable institutions regarding the suffering of the prisoners, especially the patients.

For his part; the captive’s brother Younis called on the Palestinian government to intervene to release the prisoners and to put their issue on the top of its priorities.
