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
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.
