Waed Association: Abu Hamid is subjected to a deliberate assassination
“The martyrdom of dozens of Palestinian prisoners inside Israeli prisons indicates that the occupation has gone beyond the stage of medical negligence”, says Waed Association.
Waed Association for Prisoners strongly denounced the policy of “medical negligence to which cancer-stricken Prisoner Nasser Abu Hamid and all the prisoners were subjected”, stressing that Abu Hamid is “subjected to a systematic and deliberate assassination.”
The association added that Abu Hamid “is facing his fate alone in light of the failure of international institutions concerned with the rights of prisoners.”
“The martyrdom of dozens of Palestinian prisoners inside Israeli prisons indicates that the occupation has gone beyond the stage of medical negligence and is deliberately and systematically assassinating the prisoners,” the association warned.

Earlier, the Palestinian Prisoners Club (PPC) reported that prisoner Nasser Abu Hamid's health condition is experiencing a new decline.
PPC Spokesperson Amani Sarahena told the WAFA news agency that the Israeli occupation's prison service told Asqalan prisons detainees, where Abu Hamid had been detained before he was transferred to "Barzilai" hospital, that his life is in real danger, which confirms that his health is experiencing a new decline.

Sarahena said the prison service's statement reveals that Abu Hamid's life is now in danger, that his body is not responding to treatment, and that he's experienced a major health setback.
On his account, Naji Abu Hamid, the brother of Palestinian prisoner Nasser Abu Hamid (49 years old), confirmed that the malignant tumor threatening the prisoner’s life has been discovered in August of last year, yet the occupation’s deliberate stalling and neglect led to the deterioration of his health.

A sixth brother, Abdel Moneim Abu Hamid, is a martyr. Their mother was deprived of visiting them for years, they lost their father during detention, and their family home was demolished five times - the last of which was in 2019.
