Health of captive Shawamra on the decline

[ PIC 13/10/2013 – 11:41 AM ]


AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– The health condition of prisoner Naim Shawamra from Dura town in Al-Khalil has seriously deteriorated as of late.

Shawamra appealed to all human rights groups and official and public institutions to inquire about his condition and to immediately step in and demand his release.

He said that he was experiencing excruciating pain in all parts of his body especially his limbs, hands, feet, and spinal cord.

Family members of Shawamra, who has been in Israeli jails for the past 18 years, had organized a series of solidarity activities with him.

They said that he was gradually losing his eyesight, charging the Israeli occupation authorities with neglecting his medical condition similar to the case with one thousand other patients in captivity.
