     “[PA Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa] Karake said: ‘Israel is carrying out a new massacre of prisoners.’ He noted the increase in the number of cancer patients (25 prisoners) [parentheses in source], according to the [Israel] Prison Service, but estimated that the number of cancer patients is higher than was made public.”
