Head of PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs and the Arab Dentists’ Association in Israel sign agreement regarding allowing treatment for Palestinians imprisoned in Israel

Headline: “In cooperation between the Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs and the Arab Dentists’ Association in the Interior – an agreement on dental treatment for prisoners in the occupation’s prisons was signed”

“Director of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake and a representative of the Arab Dentists’ Association in the Palestinian Interior (sic., Arab Dentists’ Association in Israel), its chairman (sic., chairman of the association’s prisoners’ affairs committee) Izz Al-Din Khalaileh, signed a cooperation agreement to provide the needed treatment to prisoners in the occupation’s prisons who suffer from dental problems…
During the meeting, the two sides discussed the main obstacles being placed by the occupation’s prison service in order to limit the entry of the association’s doctors into the prisons, and to prevent the prisoners from [receiving] the needed treatments. Likewise, they discussed the possible legal ways of helping enable doctors to provide treatment to prisoners, particularly since the prison service last year [2014] allowed the treatment of only 20 cases out of 250 in all of the prisons.”
