Gaza, Alray - Prisoner Abdullah Al-Barghouthi's health has seriously deteriorated with his hunger strike entering the 91st day, Palestine center for prisoners' studies reported.
Lawyer Mohammed Al Shayeb, who visited Al-Barghouthi on Thursday in Afula prison, warned of the criticial health condition of Al-Barghouthi.
He quoted the clinic doctor as saying "Al-Barghouthi risks death at any moment," noting that "his medical condition is monitored twice a day to check his heart rate, blood pressure, and glucose levels."
Afula prison administration refused the doctors’ demand to get the hunger striker's nerves through physical examination, citing the argument that his "transfer from his room to the clinic causes a security problem," the lawyer indicated.
Abdullah al-Barghouthi has declared since early May an open hunger strike along with four other Jordanian captives, Mohammad Rimawi, Muneer Mir’i, Hamza al-Dabbas Othman, and Alaa Hammad.
