OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) reported that the health of Palestinian captive Husam Matar, who enters his 76th day of open-ended hunger strike, has seriously deteriorated.

In a statement on Friday, the PPS said that Matar was taken from Ramlah prison hospital to Tel Hashomer hospital since two weeks after his health seriously deteriorated, adding that despite the serious deterioration in his health the Israeli prison administration were preventing lawyers from seeing him recently.

The PPS said that its lawyer is trying to visit him today to check on his health condition.

Husam Matar, from Jerusalem, is a father of two and has been imprisoned since 2007. He is serving life in Israeli jails.
