#PalHunger | Halahleh threatens to declare hunger strike against the Israeli deliberate medical negligence

[ PIC 21/09/2013 – 10:41 AM ]


RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Palestinian prisoner Thaer Halahleh, 34, has threatened to go on hunger strike and to stop taking medicines in protest against the Israeli deliberate medical negligence.

Halahleh, jailed in Eshel prison, had contracted hepatitis after his arrest in April.

The prisoner told the Palestinian prisoner society lawyer that the Israeli doctors told him that he suffers hepatitis B. However, he received no medical treatment.

The prisoner pointed to the ill-treatment he received while visiting the prison clinic where he prefers to endure the endless pain and not to visit the clinic.

For his part, the PPS lawyer said that Halahleh’s health status had sharply deteriorated compared to the last visit, stressing the need to provide him with necessary treatment.

The lawyer said that there is an increase in patient prisoners’ number in Eshel prison, adding that the patient prisoner Murad Abu Meileq was transferred to hospital after his health deteriorated.
