Palestinian prisoners at Ramlah hospital prison are facing worsening conditions, the Palestinian Prisoners’ Club reported.

Following a visit by the lawyer of the prisoners club to the prison, the organization issued a statement stating that the prison’s administration is delaying the transfer of sick Palestinian prisoners to civic hospitals to undergo required medical check ups and surgeries.

The organization noted that Palestinian prisoners are facing many restrictions despite their worsening health conditions, including banning them from watching Palestine television channels. These channels are important for prisoners to communicate with their families through the prisoners’ programs.

The prisoners complained that the time they are given to walk in an open-air prison has been reduced and so was the amount of clothes and food they were allowed to receive.

19 Palestinian prisoners are at Ramlah hospital prison. Their health condition is reportedly the worst among Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails. The youngest among them is injured child Ahmed Zidat, 14.
