Cancer has spread to other areas of Palestinian prisoner Nasser Abu Hamid’s body, including in the brain and bones, according to a new medical report.
Abu Hamid has been suffering from a sharp drop in weight, severe pains all over his body and continuous muscle weakness.
As a result of his worsening health suffering, the prisoner is unable to walk and breathe, so he is confined to a wheelchair and uses an oxygen cylinder all the time.
Earlier this month, the brother of the Palestinian cancer-stricken prisoner held the Israeli occupation authorities fully responsible for his brother’s safety.
Abu Hamid, who has been in prison since 2002, has lung cancer while in prison and recently started to take doses of chemotherapy after long Israeli procrastination and deliberate medical neglect.
He was later taken to hospital after a medical mistake caused his health to deteriorate, pushing him into a coma.
Since the tumour was discovered, Abu Hamid has suffered “medical negligence” in prison, which led to the rapid decline of his health
Abu Hamid family has launched several appeals to save her son before it is too late. But Israeli authorities continue to ignore the humanitarian appeals to release him on health grounds.
The family was recently informed that Abu Hamid is spending his final days after he reached a despair stage.
