OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The family of Palestinian prisoner Ali Da’na, 34, appealed to Doctors Without Borders and the Red Cross to urgently save the life of their son who suffers from serious health problems.
His brother Iyad said the prisoner suffers from painful urinary problems and pains in the lower part of his abdomen, adding that the Israeli prison authorities refused to let any doctor so far to check on him and provide him with medical treatment.
The family committee of Jerusalem detainees sent about one and half year ago a doctor to Gilboa prison, but when the doctor arrived at the jail to see prisoner Da’na, he was told the prisoner was transferred to the nearby jail of Shatta, then the doctor asked to go to where the patient was taken, but the Israeli jailers refused and told the doctor to get a new permit to see his patient.
At the time, the doctor had to wait outside Shatta jail for about four hours in the hope he could get a new approval to see his patient as some jailers promised him, but he received no answer from them.
Later after one and a half months, the doctor received a phone call from the administration of Shatta prison telling him he could see Da’na, but the jailers transferred the prisoner back to Gilboa and until this moment the doctor has failed to see the patient and is waiting for a phone call from Gilboa administration to get another approval.
