Monday, 28 December 2020_The health condition of an ill Palestinian prisoner has suffered a sharp decline in an Israeli jail, a report warns.

Palestinian prisoner’s health condition alarmingly worsened in Israeli jail: ReportJamal Amr, who has already a liver problem, started to complain of pains all over his body a few days ago, the Palestinian Information Center reported on Sunday, citing an alarming report by Asra Media Office, which is a Palestinian prisoners' rights advocacy group.

It added that despite Amr’s constant and increasing pains, the prison administration only informed his family about his serious liver disease, without providing him with any proper medical treatment.

The rights group affirmed that the Palestinian inmate suffers from serious kidney and liver problems as well as being in dire need of medical tests to diagnose the exact problems.

Amr’s family, for their part, appealed to international human rights groups to swiftly intervene to save his life before it is too late and to ensure his access to appropriate medical treatment, it added.

Earlier this month, the Prisoners and Ex-prisoners Affairs Authority, a group advocating Palestinian prisoners’ rights, expressed serious concern over the difficult health condition of two Palestinian inmates in an Israeli prison, warning that the pair’s conditions were deteriorating because of deliberate medical negligence.

More than 7,000 Palestinian prisoners are currently being held in some 17 Israeli jails, with dozens of them serving multiple life sentences.

Over 500 detainees are under Israel’s so-called administrative detention in various Israeli prisons. Some prisoners have been held in that condition for up to 11 years without any charges.

The co-called Israeli administrative detention is a form of imprisonment without trial or charge that allows the Israeli authorities to incarcerate Palestinians for up to six months, which could be extended for an infinite number of times.
