The administrations of the Ofer detention center,Ã‚Â near Ramallah, and the al-Maskobiyya prison in Jerusalem are responsible for the lives of three sick detainees who areÃ‚Â in need of immediate medical treatment, according to Mohammad al-Shadfan, lawyerÃ‚Â for the General Committee Against Torture.
Al-Shadfan said that detainee AlaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Yousef abu Abed, 27, from Biddu village near Ramallah, is suffering from a disability in his left hand as a result of an injury sustainedÃ‚Â to his chest area during his arrest.
Detainee Mokafih Mousa abu Roomy, 38, from al-Ezariyya near Jerusalem, is suffering from stroke and a high cholesterol level.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â
Detainee Dhirar Rajab al-Teety, 36, from al-Fawwar refugee camp in Hebron, is suffering from problems in his back and limited muscle movement. Al-Teety was operatedÃ‚Â on recently, but the procedure was not successful, and he requires hospitalization for further treatment.
Lawyer al-Shadfan appealed toÃ‚Â the Red Cross Society and Doctors Without Borders to pressure the Israeli authorities to release the sick detainees so that they can receive the required medical attention.
