The Ahrar Center for Detainees Studies reported that an unidentified virus infected several detainees who are already sick and hospitalized at the Al Ramla Israeli prison hospital which already lacks the basic equipment.The Center added that it received a letter from one of the detainees who was receiving treatment at the hospital before he was transferred to Ofer Prison.
The detainee said in his letter that this virus infected several detainees while the hospital was unable to identify it. The virus apparently infected 30 detainees which forced the prison administration to isolate each detainee in one room.
Fouad Al Khuffash, the director of the center, voiced an appeal to human rights groups to intervene and ensure adequate medical attention and checkups to the detainees in order to ensure that they would receive proper treatment and avoid complications.
Meanwhile, lawyer of the Nafha Society for Defending Detainees Rights and Human Rights met in Asqalan (Ashkelon) prison with detainee Isam Al Qadamani, who injured in his skull by the soldiers in Jerusalem before they abducted him. The detainee underwent surgery recently.
The injury caused paralysis in the left arm and the detainee now suffers constant pain in his right ear and is not receiving the needed treatment.
