Palestinian prisoner dies inside Israeli jails

Days of Palestine -

Due to medical negligence, Palestinian prisoner from West Bank passed away on Saturday morning inside Israeli jails.

Palestinian sources identified the Palestinian prisoner as Hussein Atalla from the West Bank city of Nablus. He was sentenced to 35 years in prison.

The Palestinian prisoner suffered cancer, but received bad healthcare inside the Israeli occupation jails.

Like other patients, inmates in the same prison said, the Israeli occupation did not offer him proper medical care intentionally.

Rights groups say that there are more than 6,500 Palestinian prisoners inside the Israeli jails, including at least 400 patients, who do not receive proper healthcare.
