Palestinian Gov’t asks for help to save prisoner’s life

“We call on human rights groups to act urgently to prevent his death,” Shtayyed said in a statement released by government spokesman Ibrahim Melhem.

Israeli doctors warned the day before that al-Fasfous was at brink of death.

Doctors from Barzilai hospital explained that he is developing symptoms suggestive of a blood clot, which is a warning of the risk of sudden death, his brother Hasan al Fasfous told the official Wafa news agency.

Born in the West Bank city of Dura, the 34-year-old has not eaten food for four months in demand of his release, as he is behind bars without charge or trial under the concept of administrative arrest.

Hasan stressed that he is also experiencing intermittent loss of consciousness, irregular heartbeat, tingling in his chest, a drop in blood pressure, kidney and heart problems, shortage of fluids in his body and recurring pains.

Five other Palestinian detainees are also on hunger strike for the same reason.

All of them are demanding their release as they were held without charge or trial under the so-called administrative detention, used by Israel to arrest Palestinians for renewable intervals usually ranging from three to six months on the basis of undisclosed evidence that even the defendant’s lawyer is barred from seeing.
