Presidency Holds Israel Responsible for Prisoner’s Death

RAMALLAH, April 2, 2013 (WAFA) – The presidency Tuesday held the Israeli government fully responsible for the death of Palestinian prisoner Maysara abu Hamdiya, who died due to medical negligence by the Israeli prison services.

Presidential spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina told WAFA, “We warned of this long time ago as the continued arrest of Palestinians and medical negligence lead to serious repercussions.”

He warned of the continued slow killing of prisoners detained in Israeli jails, calling the Israeli authorities to release all prisoners.

Abu Hamdiya died on Tuesday morning in Israeli Soroka hospital after a long struggle with cancer due to deliberate medical negligence.
