Palestinian prisoner undergoes surgical pacemaker implantation
The Palestinian sick prisoner Bassem al-Sayeh has undergone a surgical pacemaker implantation, the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) revealed Thursday evening.
According to the sources, al-Sayeh’s health condition is stable after the surgery.
Al-Sayeh has undergone the surgery after several appeals were voiced to save his life due to his difficult health situation, the PPS pointed out.
It added that the Israeli Prison Service finally accepted the appeals following Dr. Samir Mutawer’s recommendations. Dr. Mutawer was assigned to check on the prisoner’s health condition.
Several medical tests were conducted prior the surgery according to international medical standards, the PPS stressed.
Al-Sayeh, 43, suffers from both cancer and heart disease. He recently became unable to walk.
The Palestinian sick prisoner was arrested in October 2015 and is currently held in Ramla prison hospital.
His wife Muna al-Sayeh had also served time in Israeli jails.
