Gaza14Oct6GAZA (PNIC):-The Palestinian Prisoners Center for Studies on Tuesday called on human rights organizations to intervene to save the life of the 22-year-old Palestinian prisoner, Osama Hammad, who is facing severe medical problems in Israeli jails.

The Center said, quoting Osama's father, Hasan, that Osama has been subjected to medical negligence since the first year of his detention, adding that his health condition started to deteriorate during his interrogation at al-Maskoubiya detention center.

Osama's father expressed his deep concern over his son's health following a visit he paid to him at the Israeli Negev prison. Hammad said that his son's face looked pale and he was unable to speak or move naturally.

The Center pointed out that Osama was supposed to undergo a hernia surgery before his arrest and that he has repeatedly asked the Israeli Prison Service to allow him to have the surgery yet procrastination is the case.

Osama, who is a resident of Qalandiya refugee camp in Jerusalem, was arrested on 29th December 2015. Osama's family then informed the intelligence officer about his health condition but that did not change anything.

Osama was held at al-Maskoubiya detention center for more than a month, and a year later, Ofer court imposed a three-year prison sentence on him.
