JENIN (Ma’an) -- Palestinian detainee Fadi al-Darbi, 30, from Jenin on Wednesday died in an Israeli hospital after reportedly suffering a stroke days earlier, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Al-Darbi was declared "brain dead" in Soroka hospital on Sunday evening after the stroke, the head of the Palestinian Authority Committee for Prisoners' Affairs, Issa Qaraqe, said.

He was in critical condition at the time after suffering from acute bleeding earlier in the day. Doctors at the hospital pronounced him dead on Wednesday, Qaraqe said.

The Palestinian Prisoner's Society told Ma'an that Israeli authorities allowed his parents and siblings to visit him after his health deteriorated.

The society said in a statement that al-Darabi had suffered medical negligence by the Israeli Prison Service.

It said that he suffered bleeding in his abdomen two years ago, but was left in solitary confinement, without medical treatment.

Al-Darbi was detained by Israeli forces on March 16, 2006, and sentenced to 16 years in jail, and was last being held in the Ramon jail.

Shadi, Fadi’s brother, is currently in jail for a three-and-a-half year sentence.

Nearly 6,000 Palestinian prisoners are currently held in Israeli jails, according to prisoners' rights group Addameer.
