Days of Palestine – Ramallah
The Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) reported that the Israeli prison administration transferred the Palestinian prisoner who suffers from cancer, Nasser Abu Hamid, from Ramleh prison to Tel HaShomer Hospital.
“Prisoner Abu Hamid suffers from serious health complications after his health deteriorated once again,” The PPS said in a brief press statement on Thursday.
In August 2021, Abu Hamid was diagnosed with a malignant cancerous tumor in the lungs and had undergone an operation to remove the tumor. 10cm from the tumor’s circumference was removed, but the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) returned him to the Ashkelon prison before he completely recovered.
Despite Abu Hamid’s desperate need for chemotherapy sessions back then, the IOA deliberately delayed his treatment.
Abu Hamid, from the Al-Amari camp in Ramallah, has been detained since 2002 and is serving seven life imprisonment sentences plus 50 years.
