NABLUS, (PIC)– The prisoner Baraa Kamal Abu Amsha, from Zawata village in Nablus, suffers from frequent epileptic seizures, Tadamun Foundation for Human Rights said.
The foundation lawyer Mohammed Abed, who visited the prisoner in Megiddo prison recently, stated that Abu Amsha, 30, suffers from epileptic seizures associated with severe headache causing frequent fainting.
Abu Amsha spent long hours sleeping due to drugs provided by the prison administration, which led to the deterioration of his health condition, he added.
The Foundation pointed out that Abu Amsha was hit severely on his head when Israeli soldiers pushed him violently into the military vehicle during his first arrest in 2006. Since that time he started having epilepsy fits.
The Israeli occupation forces arrested Abu Amsha on 08/06/2013 from his home, knowing that he spent 5 years in Israeli arrest.
There are 17 prisoners in Israeli jails suffering from mental and neurological diseases, Ministry of Prisoners said.
The Palestinian Prisoners Society organized in Nablus a sit-in in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails particularly patient prisoners.
Dozens of prisoners’ families and representatives of national institutions have participated in the sit-in, demanding the release of patient prisoners.
