Terrorist who murdered 7 people has cancer, PA unjustifiably blames Israel for his illness, lying that "the Israeli Prison Service caused a deterioration in his health and the late discovery of the cancer"

Headline: “The [PA-funded] Prisoners’ Club: An additional and dangerous deterioration in the health of prisoner and cancer patient Nasser Abu Hmeid”




“The Palestinian [PA-funded] Prisoners’ Club said that a dangerous deterioration has taken place in the health of prisoner and cancer patient Nasser Abu Hmeid (i.e., terrorist, responsible for the murder of 7 people), 49…

It added that what is happening to prisoner Abu Hmeid heralds a great danger to his life, especially because he is suffering from cancer. Recently he began to receive chemotherapy treatments, after foot-dragging and deliberate medical neglect (slow murder) [parentheses in source] by the Israeli Prison Service in recent months, which led to a deterioration in his health and the late discovery of the cancer (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."
