Palyouth The Palestinian Prisoners' Club has reported that the recent medical examinations of the 50-year-old prisoner Ali Al-Haroub from Dura in Hebron have revealed the presence of new tumors in his body, after being diagnosed in the armpit and chest over two years ago.
In a press statement issued on Saturday, the Palestinian Prisoners' Club stated that Ali Al-Haroub, who is currently incarcerated in the Israeli Negev Prison, is one of at least 24 Palestinian prisoners suffering from cancer and tumors of varying degrees in Israeli prisons, facing the crime of medical negligence (slow murder)
The imprisoned Ali Al-Haroub, who has been detained since 2010 and sentenced to 25 years inside the Israeli prison, began battling the disease over two years ago. The prison administration delayed diagnosing his health condition, and his condition gradually deteriorated.
The Palestinian Prisoners' Club emphasized that medical negligence (slow murder) is now considered the most dangerous crime, with the policies pursued by the Israeli prison administration against Palestinian prisoners being the primary reason for the deaths of prisoners in recent years.
The past two years have seen an increase in the number of prisoners who have been diagnosed with cancer and tumors, with the cases of prisoners Asef Al-Rifai and Walid Daqa, who is suffering from rare bone marrow cancer, being the most challenging. Additionally, he is facing complex health conditions as a result of a series of setbacks he has experienced since March of this year, and they are currently being held in Ramla Prison Clinic.
The Palestinian Prisoners' Club held the Israeli prison administration fully responsible for the fate of Ali Al-Haroub and hundreds of other Palestinian sick prisoners who are facing the systematic policies and crimes of the Israeli prison administration.
