Palestinian prisoner undergoes surgery after suffering from heart attack

Aug. 11, 2017 4:13 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 29, 2017 2:49 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian prisoner is in stable condition after undergoing heart surgery, following a heart attack he suffered earlier this week, according to the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS).

PPS lawyer Khalid Mahajna said in a statement on Thursday he was able to visit Palestinian prisoner Daoud al-Khatib in Israel’s Soroka hospital, due to a heart attack al-Khatib suffered while being held in Israel's Ramon prison.

Mahajna said that doctors at the hospitals told him that al-Khatib suffered from 70 percent blockage in one of the heart’s valves, and that he “will remain under observation at the hospital,” noting that his condition is stable.

Al-Khatib, whose age remained unknown, is from the Bethlehem governorate, and is serving an 18 year prison sentence in Israeli prison.

According to prisoners' rights group Addameer, 6,128 Palestinians were imprisoned by Israel as of July, 450 of whom were being held without charge or trial.
