Prisoners protest lack of treatment for detainee with cancer

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Palestinian prisoners protested in Israeli jails on Saturday against the continued detention of Maysara Abu Hamdiyeh, who suffers from cancer.

Abu Hamdiyeh was transferred unconscious to hospital in Beersheva, Palestinian minister of prisoners affairs Issa Qaraqe said Saturday.

Qaraqe told Ma'an that Abu Hamdiyeh's cancer had spread because he had not received adequate treatment.

Fuad al-Khuffash, head of the Ahrar prisoners center, said detainees were returning meals in Eshel prison to protest the medical neglect of Abu Hamdiyeh.

Prisoners will escalate protests if Abu Hamdiyeh is not released, al-Khuffash said in a statement.
