Anger in Israeli occupation prisons over Abu Hamid's deteriorating health
The Israeli occupation prisons are in a "boiling" state amid the Palestinian prisoner Nasser Abu Hamid's deteriorating health and the widespread of Covid-19 among prisoners.
The Palestinian National and Islamic Forces Prisoners' Committee reported that the Israeli occupation prisons are in a boiling state, amid the deteriorating health condition of prisoner Nasser Abu Hamid and the spread of the Covid-19 virus among the prisoners.
The Prisoners' Committee pointed out that the policy of administrative detention threatens hundreds of administrative prisoners who have announced a boycott of the occupation courts procedures, considering that the occupation is slowly killing the prisoners in light of the increasing spread of Covid-19.
The Committee confirmed that all options are open and legitimate to support the prisoners, praising the administrative prisoners’ boycott of the Israeli occupation courts.
It also urged the international community to intervene urgently to stop the illegal policy of administrative detention, calling for the continuation of popular pressure on the occupation to end the suffering of the prisoners.
Earlier, Amani Farahneh, a member of the Palestinian Prisoners Club, pointed out that the Israeli Prisons Service informed the prisoners in Askalan prison, where Abu Hamid was held before being transferred to the "Barzilai" Hospital, that the prisoner's life is at risk.
It is noteworthy that prisoner Nasser Abu Hamid suffers from lung cancer and is currently being held in intensive care at the "Barzilai" Hospital.
Increasing COVID-19 cases among prisoners reflect medical negligence
On Monday, Al Mayadeen's correspondent in Palestine reported that more than 550 Palestinian prisoners have been infected with Covid-19 in several Israeli prisons.
The Palestinian Prisoners Club reported Sunday that 110 prisoners were infected with COVID-19 in the "Eshel" and "Ofer" prisons.
For its part, Waed Association for Palestinian Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners announced that the oldest Palestinian prisoner, Nael Barghouti, contracted Covid-19 in the "Eshel" prison.
In the same context, Hamas Movement Spokesperson Hazem Qassem highlighted that the increasing cases of infected prisoners reflect medical negligence against them, holding the Israeli occupation fully responsible.
Qassem indicated that the so-called Israeli Prisons Service wants to add new sufferings to prisoners, who already suffer from Israeli abuses.
It is noteworthy that five human rights organizations had submitted a petition at the Israeli occupation Supreme Court against the refusal of Israeli Security Minister Benny Gantz to vaccinate Palestinian prisoners against COVID-19.
