Vigil in Support of Palestinian Prisoner Daqqa in Occupied Nablus

S.K | DOP -

Palestinian citizens of the occupied Nablus Governorate participated Sunday, April 2, 2023, in a vigil in support of the Palestinian prisoner Walid Daqqa, in rejection of the Israeli policy of deliberate medical negligence.

Participants from the National Committee for Supporting Prisoners in Nablus Governorate, in partnership with the Palestinian Prisoners Club, raised Palestinian flags and banners opposing the policies of the Israeli occupation against Palestinian prisoners.

In turn, Bassam Yadik said on behalf of the National Committee for Palestinian Prisoners, that the prisoner Daqqa suffers from leukemia, and as a result of medical negligence followed by the prison administration, he entered a critical stage.

He also called for the broadest participation in the campaign to release the prisoner Daqqa and for the international community to assume its responsibility to save his life.

The Palestinian thinker Walid Daqqa (60), from the town of Baqa al-Gharbia in the lands of 1948, comes from a family consisting of three sisters and 6 brothers, noting that he lost his father during the years of his detention.

Prisoner Daqqa suffered several abusive policies against the backdrop of his knowledge productions in particular, and the occupation prison administration sought to confiscate his writings and private books and subject him to solitary confinement.

There are 4,780 Palestinians inside Israeli occupation prisons, including 400 who suffer severe and chronic illnesses, 31 women, and 500 administrative detainees.
