RAMALLAH, AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– The Palestinian prisoner Hassan al-Turabi who suffers from cancer slipped into a coma after his health condition deteriorated, his family said.

The Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) said in a statement on Monday that the prisoner Hassan al-Turabi went into a coma after he underwent surgery.

The Israeli doctors in Afula Hospital informed the detainee’s family that his health condition is getting worse as a result of an internal bleeding and after the spread of cancer in his body.

Prisoner Turabi suffers from leukemia. He has been detained in the occupation jails since the 1st of January 2013.

Lawyer Jawad Boulos warned on Monday of the deterioration of health condition of prisoner Naim Shawamra, from Dura south of al-khalil in the southern West Bank, who suffers from Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

Shawamra is held in Ashkelon prison in the 1948 occupied territories and has been in detention since 1995.

Boulos appealed to immediately release Shawamra, in light of the medical negligence in the Israeli jails.
