'Israel' cancels hearing for early release of cancer patient Abu Hamid
The Israeli occupation continues to turn a blind eye to the deteriorating health condition of the cancer-stricken prisoner Nasser Abu Hamid.
The Prisoners Information Office announced, on Wednesday evening, that the Israeli occupation court canceled the hearing for the early release of prisoner Nasser Abu Hamid, which was scheduled for next Sunday.
The Palestinian Prisoners Club said in a statement a few days ago that the session to consider the early release of the cancer-stricken prisoner will be held on the 18th of this September, in Ramle prison.
It also indicated that Abu Hamid’s lawyer recently submitted a request to advance the date of the session, which was scheduled for next November, based on the final medical report issued by the Israeli “Asaf Harofeh” Hospital, knowing that doctors recommended his release.

The statement clarified that this request comes within the framework of previous attempts for prisoners' release where the relevant committees either kept delaying their response or refused the release.
The Prisoners Club pointed out that in previous years, the Israeli occupation released prisoners that were suffering from cases similar to Abu Hamid. However, once amendments hit many "legislations and laws," such exceptions were halted.
Abu Hamid had rejected a proposal made by his lawyer to "request a pardon from the prime minister of the occupation government in order to release him."

Nasser Abu Hamid's brother, Naji, explained on September 9 that his brother is dying slowly as a result of medical negligence, pointing out that the latest medical report calling for his immediate release was neglected by the IOF.
Last Thursday, the Club announced that a new medical report showed that the cancer-stricken prisoner was battling death.
This evening, on Wednesday, Palestinians closed the entrance to Al-Amari camp, during an event in support of the prisoner Abu Hamid.

It is noteworthy that he was medically neglected over the years, and his health began to deteriorate in August 2021, during which he was diagnosed with lung cancer. As a result of the prison administration’s delay in conducting medical examinations for him, he reached the critical stage he is in today.
It is noteworthy that about 600 sick prisoners in the occupation prisons, including 23 prisoners, suffer from cancer and tumors of various degrees.
