From Ma’an:

Palestinian prisoner Bassam Ameen al-Sayeh, 43, from the occupied West Bank city of Nablus is in serious health condition and “may die at any moment,” the Palestinian Minister of Prisoner Affairs said Saturday.

Issa Qaraqe told Ma’an that al-Sayah is being held in a medical clinic inside of the Ramla prison and suffers from both cancer and heart disease. The prisoner has recently had difficulty breathing, Qaraqe added.

The minister urged Israel to release al-Sayah due to his poor health, holding Israel responsible for the detainee’s life. Al-Salah was detained on Oct. 8, 2015 and sentenced to 20 years in Israeli prison.

So Israel is responsible for the health of someone with apparently terminal conditions. They must really respect Israel’s medical expertise!

Naturally, they also accuse Israel of torturing him. Last month, the Palestine Information Center said:

Rights groups have raised alarm bells over the exacerbated health status of prisoner Bassem Ameen al-Sayeh, who has been fighting for his life in the Israeli prison clinic of al-Ramla.

The prisoners’ media office said quoting other sources that prisoner Bassem fell into a one-day coma in Petah Tikva investigation center and that he lost his consciousness again due to the harsh physical torture perpetrated by the investigation officers.

Cancer-stricken inmate Bassem has also been diagnosed with cardiovascular disorders and stomachaches inflicted by the harsh psycho-physical pressure he has been subjected to in the early investigation stages, during which he has often been tied up to investigation chairs for over 20 hours.

The detainee was quoted as speaking out against the threats and frequent blackmails made by the Israeli wardens in an attempt to force confession.

If he was sentenced in October, why were the Israelis trying to force his confession in November?

I have not yet been able to find out what he is being imprisoned for.

    My sympathies with this man and I hope everything pulls through for him but I was under impression that this man got cancer while in jail. However, as it seems, the condition was preexisting prior to his incarceration. Maybe he developed the other conditions in prison but the cancer portion that I would like to discuss appears to me formulated beforehand.
