Abbas Sayed, head of the senior leadership committee of Hamas prisoners, revealed that the doctors in the Israeli jails had been giving captive Maysara Abu Hamdiya medicines that had exacerbated his health condition.
Sayed confirmed that “the prisoners will not remain silent regarding the murder policy adopted by the Israeli Prison Service against them.”
Lawyer for the International Tadamun (Solidarity) Foundation for Human Rights, who visited the Hadarim prison, quoted the Hamas leader as saying that the prison doctors were prescribing for the prisoner Abu Hamdiya medicines that have nothing to do with cancer, which had weakened his immune system and thus, his disease spread.
Sayed told the lawyer that two weeks before the death of Abu Hamdiya; Deputy Director of Prisons told him that his illness has reached an advanced stage because of medical neglect.
The head of the leadership committee of Hamas prisoners stressed that “the captives can no longer bear the policy of medical neglect, and started seriously considering confronting it in every possible way.”
He urged for “taking immediate moves for the release of the patient prisoners and for providing them with the appropriate treatment before it is too late.”
