The Palestinian Commission of Detainees’ and Ex-Detainees’ Affairs has said that 80-year-old prisoner Fuaad ash-Shawbaki are being exposed to medical neglect in Israeli jails.
Shawbaki, who has been in jail for over 12 years, suffers from chronic health problems and does not receive proper medical care, according to the Commission.
With no regard for his old age and health condition, Israeli jailers transferred Shawbaki several times between prisons in recent years.
Shawbaki was arrested on March 14, 2006 when the Israeli occupation forces advanced on and surrounded the Jericho prison in which he was imprisoned along with Ahmad Saadat, the general secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and others.
Later, an Israeli military court sentenced him to 20 years in jails on a charge of supplying the Palestinian resistance with weapons.
