GAZA, (PIC)-- A Palestinian human rights center condemned the occupation authorities' continuous prevention of the wife of the prisoner and leader Abbas al-Sayed from visiting her husband in the occupation jails under the pretext of security reasons.
The Palestinian prisoners’ center for studies quoted Mrs. al-Sayed as saying: "The occupation forces did not only prevent me from visiting my husband since 4 years on the pretext of security reasons, they have also prevented me from leaving the Palestinian territories to perform Hajj this year, and enjoy the freedom of worship guaranteed by the International norms and laws."
She appealed to all local and international human rights organizations "to intervene to put an end to the suffering of the prisoners' families deprived of visiting the captives in the prisons, and to put pressure on the occupation in order to expose its immoral practices against the Palestinian prisoners and their families."
Abbas al-Sayed's wife also condemned the human rights organizations' silence regarding the abusive practices of the occupation.
Meanwhile, the Palestinian prisoners studies center confirmed that more than 900 captives inside Israeli jails suffer from various chronic illnesses, including 60 prisoners who suffer from diabetes.
The director of the Center, researcher Riyad al-Ashqar, said in a report issued by the Center on the occasion of World Day to Combat Diabetes which falls on the fourteenth of November, that hundreds of prisoners are suffering from serious illnesses as a result of the continuation of the occupation policy of medical neglect against them.
Among these illnesses, Ashqar mentioned heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, paralysis and cancer, noting that there are other captives who have been suffering psychological illnesses as a result of the torture and the solitary confinement policy adopted by the occupation prison administration.
Ashqar noted that a significant number of prisoners started suffering diabetes inside the jail, as a result of the bad situations to which they are exposed there and the absence of proper health care.
