Prisoners in Ramleh prison clinic face difficult conditions


The Palestinian prisoners in the Israeli Ramleh prison clinic are facing difficult circumstances aggravating their health conditions, according to the Palestinian prisoners society.

The society’s lawyer said after a visit to Ramleh prison on Sunday that the prison administration keeps procrastinating about transferring sick and injured prisons to civil hospitals for medical examinations, reviews, and surgeries.

He added that, in addition to their bad health conditions, the Palestinian prisoners are suffering from several harassment policies like blocking Palestine and Ma’an TV Channels. The two Channels constitute a link between the prisoners and their families, and an important source of local news.

Moreover, they complain about the lack of space in the prison yard, the restrictions put on the clothes received, the unavailability of so many things in the canteen, and the bad food provided.

19 Palestinian prisoners are held in Ramleh prison clinic, and their health conditions are of the worst in the Israeli jails, the youngest of whom is the 14-year-old wounded minor Osama Zidat.
