Sick Palestinian prisoner transferred to hospital

Dec. 26, 2013 2:16 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 26, 2013 10:15 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Israeli prison service has transferred sick Palestinian prisoner Thaer Halahla to Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba after a serious deterioration in his condition.

The Palestinian prisoner’s society told Ma’an that Halahla’s father notified their office in Hebron that Thaer was taken from Rimon prison to Soroka Medical Center.

Halahla, from the Hebron-district town of Kharas, held a 77-day hunger strike last year to protest his detention without charge by Israel.

He was released in June 2012 after reaching a deal with Israeli intelligence.

Israeli forces rearrested Halahla in April, and Israeli doctors in Ofer prison informed him that he had contracted Hepatitis C during a dental operation in Ashkelon jail, probably because non-sterile tools were used, according to Addameer prisoners group.
