Days of Palestine – Ramallah
The Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners Affairs Commission said on Monday that the health condition of detainee Nasser Abu Hamid is deteriorating significantly and that he is going through a very dangerous stage, as his weight has reached 52 kg.
The authority indicated that Abu Hamid recently underwent two sessions of chemotherapy, and is scheduled to undergo the third session next week.
The commission’s lawyer, Karim Ajwa, stated that Abu Hamid suffers from a deficiency of red blood cells, as a result of treatment and disease, and despite his need for chemotherapy, it causes him extreme fatigue, and permanent emaciation limits his ability to walk and breathe and is always accompanied by an oxygen tube.
He pointed out that Abu Hamid is currently in the “Ramle Prison” clinic, where he is accompanied by his detained brother, Muhammad, in order to help him and take care of him, and that the number of chemotherapy sessions he will undergo will be based on his health condition.
The commission held the occupation government fully responsible for his life, calling on the international community with all its formations to intervene immediately to pressure for his release and to stop the series of assassinating him, by leaving him prey to cancer.
It is noteworthy that the prisoner Abu Hamid (49 years), from Al-Amari camp in Ramallah, has been detained since 2002 and has been sentenced to five life sentences and 50 years. He is among five brothers facing life sentences in detention, in addition to a martyr’s brother.
The prisoner had their house demolished several times by the occupation forces, the last of which was in 2019, and their mother was deprived of visiting them for several years, and they lost their father during the years of their detention.
