Though He Is Dying .. Palestinian Prisoner Rejects Request “Pardon” from Head of Israeli Occupation to Release Him

M.S | DOP -

The head of the Prisoners Club, Qaddoura Fares, said on Tuesday, September 13, 2022, “The cancer patient prisoner, Nasser Abu Hamid, refused to deal with a proposal submitted by his lawyer, to submit a “pardon” request for his release, to the President of the Israeli occupation state.”

This came during his speech at the weekly sit-in to support the Palestinian prisoners, at the headquarters of the International Committee of the Red Cross, in the city of Al-Bireh, occupied West Bank.

He added, “The request came after exhausting all available legal procedures for his release and in light of the failure of the occupation prisons administration to respond to the medical recommendation recently issued by the Israeli “Asaf Harofeh” hospital to release him to spend his last days in the care of his family.”

Fares said that Abu Hamid’s family, in the most difficult moments, wants to send a message to future Palestinian generations, confirming that the freedom fighter, no matter how harsh the circumstances, and no matter how severe the challenges may be, does not despair or break in front of the criminal occupation.

He continued, “Nasser is a brave freedom fighter who wants to teach generations a lesson while he is on the bed of death. The fighter is not broken and his struggle will not stop until the Palestinian people achieve freedom and independence.”

The prisoner Nasser Abu Hamid has been suffering from lung cancer for nearly a year, and due to Israeli medical negligence and delay in conducting medical examinations and providing treatment by the Israeli occupation, his health condition deteriorated significantly. Recently, a comprehensive medical examination was conducted for him and it was found that he has reached a “hopeless” stage and that he is in his last days.
