*Prisoner: The patients in Ramla jail are medically neglected*

RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Palestinian prisoner Riyadh Amour said that the
detainees in the Ramla prison infirmary are medically neglected and
their health conditions deteriorate everyday physically and psychologically.
"The life in this hospital is unbearable. We'd rather be executed by
Israel and rest forever or provided with proper hospitalization and
medication. We can no longer stay here enduring pain and psychological
stresses," Amour, a heart patient in Ramla jail, stated in a letter he
gave to his lawyer.
"The situation has become worse than ever; the prison administration
does not respond to the demands of the detained patients and their
rights are always neglected and diminished," Amour complained.
"The chronic medical conditions have become hopeless cases and this
reflected badly on their psychological status making them sleepless and
unable to live without painkillers," he added.
"There are prisoners whose wounds have got rotten due to inadequate
treatment like the cases of prisoners Samer Awaisat and Ahmed Awad who
is fitted with waste hose as a result of their exposure to gunshots,"
the prisoner elaborated.
According to him, prisoner Mansour Mukida, paralyzed, is also in
heartbreaking condition living on painkillers and constantly suffering
from fainting spells and nervous twitches, while prisoner Nahid Al-Aqra
suffers from insomnia and his right foot rotted and now needs amputation.
Many other prisoners also suffer from difficult health conditions and
receive no appropriate medical care in the infirmary of Ramla jail, his
