Health Conditions of Cancer-stricken Abu Hamid Significantly Deteriorates

B.M | DOP -

The Palestinian Commission of Detainee and Ex-Detainees Affairs revealed on Wednesday morning, December 7, that the health condition of the Palestinian cancer-stricken prisoner Nasser Abu Hamid is significantly deteriorating.

In a press statement earlier Wednesday, Karim Ajwa, a Palestinian lawyer at the commission, reported that the cancer cells spread and grew everywhere in his body, causing complete damage his left lung.

Lawyer Ajwa explained, quoting the prisoner Muhammad Hamid, brother of Nasser, that Nasser suffers the loss of movement abilities almost in all his limbs, adding that the tumor on the left side of his body has become very prominent.

Prisoner Mohammed pointed out that with Nasser in these serious health conditions, it has become extremely difficult to treat him and even the painkillers are no longer useless.

He concluded that the local, Arabic and international organizations should intervene to immediately release his sick brother Abu Hamid before his death.

Nasser Abu Hamid is one out of 24 Palestinian prisoners diagnosed with cancer in Israeli prisons. Israeli occupation authorities deliberately practice medical negligence against them.
