    Palestinian political prisoner Hassan Turabi dies in Afula hospital

by samidoun <http://samidoun.ca/?author=1>

Palestinian political prisoner Hassan Abdelhalim al-Turabi, 22, died in 
occupation custody in the early morning of Tuesday, November 5 in Afula 

Turabi's family, from Sarra village west of Nablus, was informed of his 
death officially early Tuesday morning.

Heba Masalha, of the Ministry of Prisoners, said that Turabi suffered 
from leukemia, and his blood vessels burst and he was vomiting blood, 
and he was taken to the Intensive Care Unit where it was reported that 
his cancer had reached his kidneys and other organs and he was suffering 
severe internal bleeding.

He was arrested on January 17, 2013 and accused of being a member of 
Islamic Jihad. Despite pleas from humanitarian organizations over the 
past days for his immediate release due to his severe health crisis, the 
occupation refused to release him.

On April 2, 2013, Maysara Abu Hamdieh 
died as a prisoner of Israel, of cancer for which he was repeatedly 
denied treatment. A number of seriously ill Palestinian political 
prisoners are held in Israeli jails, despite numerous calls for their 
release <http://alray.ps/en/index.php?act=post&id=2065>. Palestinian 
prisoners have repeatedly testified as to the denial of proper medical 
care <http://samidoun.ca/category/campaigns/medical-abuse-and-neglect/>, 
the provision of painkillers for serious disease, and medical neglect 
in Israeli prisons, with Turabi's death only the latest example in an 
ongoing human rights abuse.
