Mother appeals for surgery for imprisoned son

May 30, 2013 11:22 A.M. (Updated: May 31, 2013 4:19 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The mother of a prisoner from the Gaza Strip detained in Israel has appealed for emergency surgery for her son.

Murad Abu Moleq's mother and father were able to visit their son in April.

"When I saw him he was terribly ill and needed an urgent surgery but Israeli prison administration refuses and postpones his surgery," his mother told Ma'an.

She said he had already had one surgery to remove part of his intestine, but suffered serious infections after the operation and his condition worsened. She added that he had no health problems before his detention.

Murad's brother Ziyad told Ma'an the family received information Murad was in a coma in a hospital in Beersheva.

Ziyad said Israel's prison administration refused to update Murad's lawyer on his condition, and whether he was expected to survive.

"My brother was shot in the leg and was detained while bleeding in June 2001. He was committing an attack against Israel and was caught and shot," Ziyad said.

Murad was sentenced to 22 years.
