RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Palestinian female prisoners in the Israeli Hasharon jail returned their meals on Saturday in protest at the prison administration’s deliberate medical neglect.
Prisoner Mona Qadan told lawyer Amer Abu Hamdiya on Saturday that the prisoners were protesting the administration’s neglect of the health condition of their colleague Leena Jarboni, 34.
She said that Jarboni’s health condition was steadily worsening and was in need of an urgent surgery due to acute pain in her gallbladder.
She said that the prisoners would escalate their protest if the prison administration did not extend urgent medical assistance to Jarboni, who is serving an 18-year sentence. more
