Thaer Halahleh moved to Hadassah hospital

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Palestinian prisoner Thaer Halahleh was moved to Hadassah hospital following further deterioration in his health, the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) revealed.

After his re-arrest in April 2013, he contracted Hepatitis C. Halahleh was not ill before being imprisoned, the PPS pointed.

The center stressed the need for an urgent interference for the release of Halahleh in light of the Israeli violations against Palestinian sick prisoners particularly.

Halahleh, who was released last June after a 77-day hunger strike conducted with fellow administrative detainee Bilal Diab, was re-arrested in April. Once again he has not been charged; Halahleh has been arrested eight times and served six and a half years in Israeli prisons.

In the same context, PPS pointed that the prisoner Aaron Ibrahim Abu Mhamid, 30, from Bethlehem in is detained in Hadassah hospital after he has been injured and arrested a few days ago.

Abu Mhamid, who suffers mental disorder, was receiving treatment in a mental hospital. Once he got out of the hospital, he was arrested while passing through Qalandiya checkpoint on Thursday.

He was arrested by the Israeli forces after he was brutally assaulted and shot in his feet, the PPS confirmed.
