#PalHunger | Health status of hunger striker Barghouthi at critical stage

[ PIC 11/07/2013 – 12:34 PM ]


RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Palestinian prisoner society said that the health status of Jordanian hunger striker Abdullah Barghouthi has reached a life-threatening stage.

The prisoner society stated on Wednesday that the Israeli doctors stopped to provide Barghouthi with water after he suffered severe inflammations and his kidneys, liver and other vital organs of his body failed to function properly.

The society said that the Israeli jailers insist on keeping Barghouthi shackled to the hospital bed despite his critical health condition.

Barghouthi, in turn, said in a letter published by the prisoner society that his hunger strike would end only on or under the Jordanian soil, stressing that he does not want to cause any political problems to his country.
