Ahrar: Qabaha in critical condition in Ramle prison hospital

NABLUS, (PIC)-- The Ahrar center for prisoners' studies and human rights held the Israeli occupation government fully responsible for the life of former minister Wasfi Qabaha.
Fuad Al-Khafsh, the director of Ahrar, said in a statement on Sunday that Qabaha since his detention three days ago was transferred to hospital in an unstable condition, with high blood sugar level fluctuations.
He expressed concern over the life of Qabaha, who was only released from Israeli detention eight months ago, charging the Israeli occupation authority with trying to liquidate the minister as evident in remanding him in custody under such a deteriorating health condition.
Khafsh said that Israel was the only state to imprison sick, elderly and disabled people, noting that the prison hospital, where Qabaha is being treated, contains 28 other detained patients in very serious conditions including those who could not move and others who suffer from kidney failure, cancer, and hepatitis.
The director appealed to the human rights groups, health organizations and Médecins Sans Frontières to inquire about those sick detainees and to demand their release.
