#PalHunger | Al-Barghouthi risks death on his 91st day of hunger strike

[ PIC 02/08/2013 – 01:28 PM ]


RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The health condition of prisoner Abdullah Al-Barghouthi has seriously deteriorated after 91 days of hunger strike along with four other Jordanian captives.

Lawyer Mohammed Al Shayeb, who visited Al-Barghouthi yesterday in Afula prison, warned of the serious deterioration of the striker’s health condition due to his continued hunger strike.

The lawyer quoted the doctor as saying that Al-Barghouthi risks death at any moment, noting that his medical condition is monitored twice a day to check his heart rate, blood pressure, and glucose levels.

The IPS in Afula prison has refused the doctors’ demand to conduct the hunger striker physical examination to his nerves under the pretext that his transfer from his room to the clinic causes a security problem, the lawyer added.

Abdullah al-Barghouthi has declared since early May an open hunger strike along with four other Jordanian captives, Mohammad Rimawi, Muneer Mir’i, Hamza al-Dabbas Othman, and Alaa Hammad.
