Hamed Al Bitawi, the Hamas Parliamentarian, was today moved from the Al Jalamah detention camp to an Israeli prison hospital after concerns over his health heightened.

The Al Bitawi family reported on Tuesday that the MP was moved to the hospital late on Monday night after his health seriously deteriorated.

Hamed Al Bitawi was kidnapped on March 25, 2007 during an Israeli military operation in the West Bank that targeted more than 40 Palestinian law makers, officials and Hamas supporters.

Medical sources stated that Al Bitawi, 63, suffers from several illnesses, including diabetes and a serious heart condition.

The Israeli administration has previously denied him permission to travel to Jordan for medical help on a number of occasions in the past.
