  Female Prisoners Face Medical Neglect in Hasharon

author Tuesday November 04, 2014 04:56author by IMEMC News & Agencies

    The Committee for Prisoners' Affairs said, Monday, that 17 female
    Palestinian prisoners held in Hasharon Israeli prison are currently
    facing harsh conditions, including medical negligence and denial of
    family visits.

Attorney for the committee, Hanan al-Khateeb, said that female prisoners 
have been deprived of adequate blankets to protect them from the cold 
winter and are denied adequate medical care.

According to WAFA Palestinian News & Info Agency, Israeli prison 
administration prohibits prisoners from bringing blankets and warm 
winter clothes from outside, but allows them to buy blankets from the 
prison's canteen. The blankets sold there are reportedly very expensive, 
very bad in quality and do not provide proper warmth.

Some 1,500 Palestinian prisoners held by the state of Israel suffer from 
illnesses, 80 of whom suffer from serious health problems and do not 
receive the necessary treatment. Types of illnesses are said to range 
from malignant diseases, paralysis and other disabilities, in addition 
to cases of mental illnesses and neurological disorders.

To be noted, Palestinian prisoners detained in other Israeli detention 
centers also suffer from similar conditions and maltreatment.
