Hamas prisoners boycott inadquate prison healthcare in protest at medical neglect

NABLUS, (PIC)-- The leadership of Hamas captives in Israeli jails said that prisoners decided to boycott prison clinics on Tuesday in protest at the deliberate policy of medical neglect exercised against them.

The captive movement told Ahrar center for prisoner studies and human rights on Monday that it decided to launch a number of protest steps against this policy starting with Tuesday.

It said that the step would be a preliminary one and that other escalatory steps might be adopted in the event this first message was not heeded.

Fuad Al-Khafsh, the director of Ahrar, said that the prisoners’ demands include releasing all cancer patients, providing an ambulance to transfer sick detainees instead of the prison’s vehicle, accelerating surgeries for those in need of them, allowing doctors from outside prison to check on the prisoners and holding periodical check-ups on prisoners. more
