Prisoners on Hunger Strike Face Deteriorating Health Conditions
The Mahaja al-Quds Foundation reports the deterioration in the health of the two Palestinian prisoners, Mohammad Amoudi and Hosni Issa, due to the Israeli Prison Authority's policy of neglect.
On Sunday, the Muhaja Al-Quds Foundation reported the deterioration of the health condition of the two prisoners on hunger strike, Mohammad Amoudi, and Hosni Issa, due to the Israeli prison authority’s neglect.
The two prisoners began an open hunger strike last Wednesday to protest the repressive measures and penalties imposed by the occupation prisons administration against Islamic Jihad prisoners following the Freedom Tunnel operation at the Gilboa Prison.
Seven prisoners in the Israeli occupation prisons are continuing their open hunger strike to protest their administrative detention. The prisoners suffer from dire health conditions and may suffer sudden health setbacks, precisely because of the lack of fluid in the body.
For its part, the Prisoners Club confirmed yesterday, Saturday, that the battle of prisoners is escalating in the occupation prisons. The hunger strike of Islamic Jihad prisoners entered its fifth day, intending to confront the measures taken by the occupation prisons administration against them.
Al-Qawasmi will continue until freedom
In turn, prisoner Miqdad Al-Qawasmi's mother, Iman Badr, confirmed that her son will continue the strike until he achieves his freedom, explaining to Al-Mayadeen that the prisoner's health condition is deteriorating.
Al-Qawasmi’s health condition has rapidly deteriorated in recent days, as he suffers from severe weight loss, low heart rate, shortness of breath, and severe pain throughout his body. According to the Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners Affairs Authority, he can hardly stand and suffers from blurred vision, pain in his intestines, head, and abdomen.
According to his father, Omar al-Qawasmi, Miqdad is in a dangerous health condition and has begun to experience memory loss, but he insists on continuing his hunger strike until he is free.
