Israel transfers cancer patient to Suroka Hospital

Sept. 16, 2013 8:36 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 17, 2013 12:50 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma’an) – Israel's prison service on Monday transferred a Palestinian prisoner held in Rimon prison to Suruka Medical Center in Beersheba after a sudden decline as a result of throat cancer he has been suffering.

A statement by the Palestinian prisoner’s society highlighted that 38-year-old Mahmoud Salih al-Sharha was in serious condition. The statement added that since al-Sharha was diagnosed with a tumor, he “has not received any treatment.”

The prisoner’s family told Ma’an that he was diagnosed with cancer two years ago.

Al-Sharha, from the Hebron area, has been jailed 11 years and is serving a 22-year sentence.
