OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli Prison Services (IPS) refused to conduct medical tests on the prisoner Samer Issawi since being moved to Shatta prison following the end of his hunger strike, Freedoms Center revealed.

The center quoted Issawi’s lawyer as saying that he suffers an Israeli deliberate medical negligence.

Issawi, 33, suffers sharp kidney pain and health deterioration since 2 weeks in light of the Israeli deliberate medical negligence, the lawyer explained.

The Freedoms Center expressed deep concern towards Issawi’s health condition, holding the occupation responsible over his life.

The human rights center called on the international community to pressure the occupation authorities to provide Issawi with the necessary medical care.
