Headline: "[Ramallah District Governor] Ghannam visits prisoners' homes and offers condolences on the Martyrdom death of Abu Hamdiyeh."
"Ramallah District Governor Laila Ghannam yesterday visited the families of Issa Abd Rabbo and Muhammad Abu Aker in Bethlehem, and expressed her interest in how they (the prisoners) are doing and the conditions [of their confinement]. She stressed that the prisoners' mothers pay a price of their own vitality and strength, while demonstrating patience and resolve that prove the determination of the Palestinian people to challenge [Israel], in spite of its (the Palestinian people's) difficult situation... The District Governor expressed condolences over the death of hero prisoner Maysara Abu Hamdiyeh. She said that his Martyrdom death serves as a death notice for all human rights organizations that sat passively while he suffered. She also noted that the cancer that attacked his body as a result of [Israel's] intentional medical negligence is evidence of a despicable crime against humanity that has been added to the long list of wounds inflicted by the occupation on anything Palestinian."
