Occupied Palestine, ALRAY - Cancer-stricken Palestinian detainee Nasser Abu Humaid is at risk of life-threatening, as his health condition is dramatically deteriorating, Commission of Detainees’ Affairs said on Wednesday.

The commission pointed out that the health condition of the detainee Abu Humaid is worsening considerably, as cancer has widely spread to the organs of his body.

It added that Abu Humaid has recently suffered from fluid accumulation around his lungs, deep sleep bouts, rapid heart rate, severe loss of blood volume and weight, lack of appetite, unrecognition of what goes on around him, inability to move his limbs, as an oxygen device is always attached to him.

For his part, brother of the detainee Abu Humaid renewed his appeals to all local, regional and international parties to take urgent and effective action to save the life of his brother.

At least 24 cancer-stricken detainees in Israeli jails experience a policy of slow killing as a result of deliberate medical negligence and not receiving the appropriate treatment.

 The 49-year-old detainee Abu Humaid, who is a resident of the al-Amari refugee camp, is among four other brothers who have been sentenced by the Israeli occupation for a life-term in prison.

His brothers, identified as Nasr, Nasser, Sharif, and Mohammed were detained by the Israeli occupation authorities in 2002, while his brother Islam was detained in 2018.

According to Palestinian figures, about 4,500 Palestinians, including 32 women and 160 children, are currently languishing in Israeli detention jails.
