Palestinian political prisoners jailed in Al Naqab Prison in the
Israeli Negev reported that they are suffering severe food poisoning,
which is preventing them from participating in the Ramadan fast. 

One prisoner, interviewed by PNN, said, “Not even a half hour had passed since we were fed before a number of prisoners experienced severe bouts of vomiting, diarrhea and high temperature associated with severe colic.” Despite reporting the need to treat prisoners, the Israeli administration ignored the request.

Prisoners also reported that prison management is guilty of deliberately withholding medical treatement, which, despite appeals to the Israeli administration, has not been addressed.

The prison population is calling on humanitarian and human rights organizations to intervene on their behalf.
