Prisoners to boycott Ashkelon prison clinic

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinians held in Israel's Ashkelon jail will boycott the prison clinic in protest over medical neglect, the PA detainee affairs ministry said Friday.

A ministry lawyer said in a statement that detainees had made 11 complaints against the doctor in Ashkelon prison clinic.

The prison doctor refused proper treatment to sick detainees, mocked them and mistreated them, detainees informed the lawyer in a letter.

Tension is high in the prison due to frequent, intensive searches and cell raids by prison guards.

The detainees called on human rights organizations to intervene to help prisoners, particularly those who are sick, the lawyer added.
