Ten Palestinian prisoners suffer from cancer inside Israeli jails

Palestine (QNN)- The Palestinian Committee for Prisoners and Ex-prisoners Affairs has affirmed that two Palestinian prisoners have been diagnosed with cancer, raising the number of Palestinians who suffer from cancer inside Israeli prisons to 10.

The two prisoners are Nidal Abu Ahour and Imad Abu Ramouz.

The Committee stated that the detainee, Nidal Abu Ahour, 45, from Bethlehem, suffers from kidney cancer and was diagnosed with kidney failure more than ten years ago.

Imad Abu Ramouz, 46 years old, was also diagnosed with a cancerous tumor.

The committee appealed to international medical institutions and International Committee of the Red Cross to necessarily visit those prisoners and provide them with medical care, pointing out that medical negligence in the prisons is the reason behind the deterioration in their health.
