RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian detainee underwent surgery on Wednesday after female prisoners threatened to go on hunger strike over delays to her treatment.

Lina Jarbouni is recovering in hospital from an operation to remove her gall bladder, said lawyer Taghreed Jahshan.

Doctors told Jahshan the operation took two hours as Jarbouni was in a serious condition, and that she would have to stay in hospital for four days due to infections.

Jarbouni is chained to her hospital bed and is being guarded by three prison officers, the lawyer said, adding that Jarbouni is uncomfortable being in a hospital robe in the presence of male guards.

She was detained in 2002 and sentenced to 17 years.

Female detainees had threatened to go on hunger strike over delays to Jarbouni's treatment.
