Terrorist murderer of 7 people Nasser Abu Hmeid is dying of cancer, PA says Israel is to be blamed and is "responsible" for his illness

Headline: “Prisoner Nasser Abu Hmeid was surprisingly transferred to Barzilai Hospital”




“The [PLO] Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners’ Affairs announced that prisoner Nasser Abu Hmeid (i.e., terrorist, responsible for the murder of 7 people), 49, was surprisingly transferred yesterday, Tuesday [Jan. 4, 2022], to the Israeli Barzilai Hospital.

Director of Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Qadri Abu Bakr held the occupation government fully responsible for the life of prisoner Abu Hmeid… who is currently connected to a ventilator.

Abu Bakr said that for a while prisoner Abu Hmeid has been suffering from deliberate medical neglect, which led him to this dangerous situation (sic., see note below regarding PA libel on medical abuse of Palestinian prisoners).”





Nasser Abu Hmeid - Palestinian terrorist and a commander of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades (Fatah's military wing) in Ramallah who was responsible for the murder of 7 Israelis: Eli Cohen in a shooting attack on Route 443 in central Israel on Dec. 21, 2000; Binyamin and Talia Kahane in a drive-by shooting attack near Ofra, north of Jerusalem, on Dec. 31, 2000; Gadi Rejwan in a shooting attack in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Atarot on Feb. 27, 2002; and Yosef Habi, Eli Dahan, and Police Officer Sergeant-Major Salim Barakat in an attack at the Seafood Market and Mifgash Hasteak restaurants in Tel Aviv on March 5, 2002. Abu Hmeid is serving 7 life sentences and an additional 50 years.


Libel on medical abuse of Palestinian prisoners - The PA claims that Israel abuses Palestinian prisoners through medical neglect, medical experiments, and by intentionally infecting them with diseases. However, the International Red Cross regularly visits these prisoners and has not documented or accused Israel of any of these claims. Likewise, lists of demands occasionally issued by the prisoners during hunger strikes—such as during one in 2011—include no demands relating to these claims. PMW has documented prisoners talking about how they "lack nothing" in the prisons and that "the worst thing about Israeli prison" is riding in a prison vehicle that has no padding on the seat. When PMW contacted the Israeli Ministry of Health in 2007 regarding PA claims of medical experiments on prisoners, the ministry responded: "Clinical testing on prisoners in prison was never approved, never performed, and is most certainly not taking place at present."
