The number of sick Palestinian detainees in Israeli prisons, including patients with chronic and serious diseases, has increased to 750, Wa’ed Association for Detainees and Ex-detainees stated Thursday, June 1, 2023.
Wa’ed reported that there are 26 cancer patient detainees in Israeli prison, in which the prison administration practices medical negligence against them.
It indicated that the Israeli occupation deliberately rejects to meet their needs and provide them required medical care and treatment.
One of the serious cases is the detainee Asif Al-Rifai, 20, as recent examinations revealed that cancer has spread in most parts of his body, and he suffers from a very bad psychological condition, according to Wa’ed.
It indicated that the detainee Walid Daqqa is one of the recent stories that prove the criminality of the Israeli occupation and its systematic attacks against Palestinian detainees.
Yesterday, the Israeli occupation rejected the early parole of cancer-patient Palestinian detainee Walid Daqqa despite his deteriorated health.
Daqqa was diagnosed with a rare type of bone marrow cancer several months ago and has been suffering successive health setbacks.
Like other Palestinian detainees, Daqqa, who was previously diagnosed with leukemia in 2015, has suffered from medical negligence during his 37 years in prison, which has worsened his health.
