Palestinian Minster of Detainee, Issa Qaraqeâ€™, reported Thursday that arrangements are being conducted to transfer ailing hunger striking detainee, Samer al-Barq, to Egypt after a sharp decline in his health condition at a-Ramla Israeli Prison Clinic.Al-Barq, from the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, started his hunger strike 122 days ago demanding his release as he is being held by Israel without charges.
Qaraqeâ€™ said that al-Barq asked to be moved to Egypt to receive the needed treatment as Israel is refusing to release him to receive treatment at a Palestinian hospital.
Israel will be moving him to the border with Egypt where an Egyptian ambulance will be waiting for him; arrangements are underway through the Red Cross to allow his family to see him before he is exiled to Egypt.
In related news, Qaraqeâ€™ said that an Israeli Military Court decided, Wednesday, not to renew the Administrative Detention order against detainee Hassan as-Safady, who started his hunger strike 92 days ago, demanding to be released.
He will likely be released on September 29, the day that marks the end of a six-month Administrative Detention order served against him.
It is worth mentioning that Qaraqeâ€™ called on Israel to immediately release detainee Riyadh Dakhlallah al-Amour, 41, due to the seriousness of his health condition. Al-Amour is serving eleven life-terms.
Al-Amour is at the Al-Ramla Prison Hospital and his health condition is seriously deteriorating due to several health complications; he repeatedly loses consciousness and several organs in his body, including his bladder and colon, are failing.
There are 17 detainees who are hospitalized at the Al-Ramla Prison Clinic, facing various serious health conditions, and are deprived from the needed specialized medical care they urgently need.
