In August 2021, Abu Hamid was diagnosed with lung cancer and he underwent an operation to remove the malignant tumor.
The Israeli occupation authority returned him to Ashkelon prison before he completely recovered.
Abu Hamid, from the Al-Amari camp in Ramallah, has been detained since 2002 and is serving seven life sentences plus 50 years.
