NABLUS, (PIC)– Tadhamun Foundation for Human Rights reported that 2 Palestinian female captives in the Israeli Hasharon prison suffer difficult health conditions as a result of medical negligence by the prison administration.

Researcher at the Foundation Ahmed Betawi said that captive Lena Ahmed Jerboni, aged 40, suffers from swelling and severe pain in the stomach, after cholecystectomy she underwent two months ago.

He noted that an Arab doctor visited Jerboni in Hasharon and confirmed that the cause of swelling is the presence of bacteria in the stomach caused by the surgery and gave her medication for 10 days.

He explained that Jerboni’s surgery came late.

For his part; the lawyer at Tadhamun foundation Mohammed Abed confirmed that Jerboni is not able to go out for visits due to her inability to walk because of the pain in her feet.

Abid added that the captive Anaam Hassanat, 30, suffers from migraine and severe pain, pointing out that she also could not go out for visits because of her inability to move.

Captive Jerboni, from the town of Araba al-Buttof in Akka, was arrested on April 18 2002 and was sentenced to 17 years, while captive Anaam Hassanat, from Dheisheh refugee camp in Bethlehem, was arrested a year ago and sentenced to two years imprisonment.

There are 13 Palestinian female prisoners held in the Israeli occupation jails.
