Wife of Gazan detainee accuses Israeli Prison Service of neglect

Gaza – Ma'an – The wife of a Gazan detainee suffering from bone marrow cancer accused the Israeli Prison Service of medical negligence on Monday.

Raed Muhammad Drabyeh, 36, from the Jabaliya Refugee Camp was sentenced to life and has undergone several surgeries to treat his cancer, Drabyeh's wife said.

"We are so worried about his life, particularly after his last surgery in March 2009 following which he lost sensation in his legs and was no longer able to walk," she said.

Head of the Prisoner Studies Society, Ra'fat Hamdounah, condemned alleged medical negligence at the hands of the IPS, citing a number of cases of prisoners with chronic illnesses who have not been allowed access to medical treatment.

Hamdounah called on human rights organizations to intervene and end the neglect of detainees in Israeli jails.
