PA-funded Prisoners' Club accuses Israel of policy of "deliberate medical neglect" against Palestinian prisoners

Headline: “A report on the status of the sick prisoners in the occupation’s prisons”

“The [PA-funded] Prisoners’ Club published a report yesterday [April 2, 2020] on the status of the sick prisoners in the Israeli occupation’s prisons.

The club said in its report that… since 1967, 67 prisoners have died as Martyrs as a result of the policy of deliberate medical neglect that constitutes one of the most blatant tools used by the occupation’s [Israeli] Prison Service against the sick prisoners. It should also be noted that many of them did not suffer from diseases or medical problems before their arrest.”
