The Israeli prison service (IPS) has ceased supplying cancer-stricken Palestinian detainee Bassam al-Sayeh with medicine.
Al-Sayeh’s wife, Mona Abu Bakr, also an ex-prisoner, said the Ramla prison clinic administration decided to prevent her jailed husband from treatment under the pretext that al-Sayeh will be undergoing a cardiac surgery.
Al-Sayeh was arrested by the Israeli occupation forces during a court hearing held for his wife at the Israeli Salem court on October 8, 2015.
He has been diagnosed with cancer and sharp cardiomyopathy, along with critical lung diseases and breathing disorders.
Human rights groups have often sounded the alarm over the preplanned medical neglect perpetrated by the Israeli prison authorities against al-Sayeh, among other Palestinian detainees, behind prison bars.
