RAMALLAH, Thursday, April 8, 2021 (WAFA) – The Israeli prison authorities are turning a blind eye to the deteriorating health condition of Palestinian prisoner Imad Hasan Rabaiaa, 45, today said the Palestinian Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs Commission.
Rabaiaa has been suffering from a skin disease that causes him severe itching, redness, and the appearance of pimples all over his body. Israeli occupation authorities have so far failed to provide him with adequate medical care or refer him to hospital.
"This deliberate negligence of prisoner Rabaaia's health condition is one of multiple forms of torture and abuse against the 700 Palestinian sick prisoners in the Israeli prisons," said the Commission.
Rabaiaa has been in prison since 2002, and is serving a jail sentence of 23 years for his activism in the resistance of the Israeli occupation.
