Af.M | DOP -

Israeli Occupation handed over on Sunday, 26 March 2023 the body of a Palestinian detainee died in Israeli jails due to deliberate medical negligence in February 2023.

The Palestinian General Authority for Civil Affairs received the body of the slain Palestinian detainee Ahmed Badr Abdullah Abu Ali, 48, a resident of the southern West Bank city of Yatta, near Hebron. Ahmed, father-of-nine, died in the Israeli Soroka Hospital due to Israel’s systematic medical negligence.

Abu Ali detained since 2012 and sentenced to 12 years in imprisonment. He only had two years left before his release. Throughout his imprisonment years, he suffered from several diseases, chronic heart problems, and diabetes.

Israeli Prison Service (IPS) deliberately delayed providing him with the necessary treatment, conducting medical examinations, and following up on his health status, which led to his death on February 10.

Israeli Occupation uses deliberate medical negligence as a common punitive measure against Palestinian detainees in Israeli jails.

600 sick Palestinian detainees have been held in the Israeli occupation jails, including 23 cancer-stricken prisoners. 

73 Palestinian prisoners lost their lives inside Israeli occupation prisons since 1967 due to a systematic policy of deliberate medical negligence, according to the Palestinian Prisoner’s Club.
