15-year-old child Osama Zaidat, who was recently released from an Israeli jail, said that the detainees in Ramla hospital suffer from tragic health conditions and deliberate medical neglect.

The child made the notes during a visit made by head of the Palestinian commission for detainees’ affairs Issa Qaraqie.

Zaidat also handed Qaraqie a letter from 17-year-old Jalal Sharawneh describing the medical conditions of detainees and his difficult health status in the Israeli hospital.

The Israeli occupation authority released Zaidat, from Bani Na’im town in al-Khalil (Hebron), on Monday and later he was transferred to Palestine hospital in Ramallah to pursue his medical treatment.

He was arrested on September 23, 2016 after he was shot by an Israeli soldier.

A few days ago, an Israeli court issued a verdict ordering the release of Zaidat on bail amounting to 25,000 NIS.
