AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– The father of the prisoner Thaer Halahleh, from Kharas village near al-Khalil, appealed on Wednesday to all human rights institutions to intervene to get his son released in light of his sharp health deterioration.

Haj Halahleh told the PIC reporter that his son was transferred from Eshel prison to Soroka hospital after his health deterioration especially that Thaer is afflicted with hepatitis C virus.

Thaer has stopped taking medication protesting that Israeli deliberate medical negligence where he was not receiving proper treatment for hepatitis C.

The father called on all international organizations and human rights institutions to intervene and pressure the occupation authorities for the release of his son before it is too late.

Halahleh, a former hunger striker who was freed in 2012, was re-arrested in April 2013. He contracted the hepatitis C virus during a dental operation during his previous imprisonment in Israeli prisons where improper sterilization was used.
