#PalHunger | Health conditions of two Jordanian prisoners deteriorate

[PIC 18/06/2013 – 09:51 PM ]

GAZA, RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Israeli occupation authorities transferred on Tuesday two Jordanian hunger striking prisoners from Ramle prison clinic to an Israeli hospital due to the deterioration of their health condition.

The Jordanian prisoners in Israeli jails have announced on 2 May an open-ended hunger strike; in protest at the bad prison conditions, the policy of medical neglect and the prevention of family visits.

Abdullah Qandil, spokesman for Wa’ed Society for Prisoners and Ex-prisoners, told Quds Press that the two Jordanian captives Hamza Al-Dabbas and Mohammad Rimawi were moved to Soroka hospital in Beersheva, in an extremely serious condition.

He added that many other Jordanian hunger striking prisoners have been transferred to the same hospital as their health condition deteriorated because of their ongoing hunger strike launched 47 days ago.

Qandil called on the Jordanian government to immediately intervene in order to save its captives in the Israeli jails especially after their health started to deteriorate due to their strike.

Meanwhile; the Qassam commander held in Israeli jails Abdullah Barghouti entered his 48th day of his ongoing hunger strike.

Barghouthi, isolated in a room in Afula hospital, told his lawyer Mohamed Al-Shayeb that the prison officers deliberately offend him in an attempt to pressure him psychologically through holding barbecues outside his room.

He asserted he would continue his hunger strike until his last breath and would never stop until he could return to Jordan, even if as a dead body.

Barghouti said that the Israeli authorities have sent a delegation from the Foreign Ministry to negotiate with him and told him that they will allow his family to visit him once a month and in exchange he would stop the strike. However, he refused and stressed that his only demand is to return to Jordan.
