BREAKING| Hisham Abu Hawash tests positive for COVID-19 after 12 days of ending hunger strike

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Palestinian detainee in Israeli jails, Hisham Abu Hawash, has tested positive for COVID-19, after 12 days only of ending his hunger strike which lasted for 141 consecutive days in protest against his administrative detention without a charge or a trial by Israeli occupation authorities.

The Assaf Harofeh Hospital, where Abu Hawash is hospitalized, announced on Thursday night that Hisham has tested positive for COVID-19 and he was transferred to the COVID-19 specialized section, local sources said.

The family of Abu Hawash accused the administration of the Assaf Harofeh hospital of medical negligence against their son as he was put with a number of patients and was not isolated in a room as his health situation requires specialized medical care after 141 days of starving and suffering.

The family has urged Hisham to be transferred to a Palestinian hospital in the West Bank so that he can get the needed medical care.
