NABLUS, (PIC)-- The Palestinian prisoner society launched a campaign to demand international organizations to intervene to save the life of prisoner Abdelkhaliq Gurani and provide him with urgent appropriate medical treatment.

Director of the society in Tubas city Mahmoud Sawafta said the Israeli administration of Megiddo prison refuses to provide him with serious medical treatment despite the deterioration of his health.

Sawafta added that prisoner Gurani suffers from kidney failure and severe anemia, and his health reached a deadly level as a result of the medical neglect policy pursued in general against all Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

He expressed his deep concern over the life of the prisoner and appealed to international human rights organization, especially the Red Cross to urgently intervene to save his life.
