Although human rights bodies including the International Red Cross demanded the Israeli occupation to release Abu Hamid to be able to get proper treatment as his medial status was very serious, the Israeli prisons services ignored the warning and insisted on inhuman punishment.
Palestinian sources noted on Tuesday that health of Abu Hamid has seriously deteriorated, and he was moved to the intense care unite in the hospital under Israeli heavy guard.
Yet, Palestinian Ministry of prisoners and freed prisoners declared on Wednesday morning that Abu Hamid has died because of the Israeli medical negligence that was used against him.
The ministry added that the Israeli occupation forces still seize the body of Naser Abu Hamid and refuse to hand it over to his family.
