Palestinian Detainee Dies In Israeli Prison
Nov 18, 2021 – – IMEMC News
The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) has confirmed, Thursday, that a Palestinian detainee, imprisoned by Israeli since the year 2008, has died at an Israeli medical center after years of medical neglect despite having congenital heart disease, and his need to constant follow up.
In a short statement, the PPS said that the detainee has been identified as Sami al-‘Amour, 39, from Deir al-Balah, in the central Gaza Strip.
The detainee was transferred to an Israeli hospital on Wednesday at night, where he was officially pronounced dead by the physicians.
His fiancé, who remained engaged to him for fourteen years since his abduction, said that the family received the news about his death from media outlets.
It is worth mentioning that only his mother was able to visit with him just a few times since his abduction due to Israeli restrictions.
His sister said that the last time the family was able to talk to him over the phone was before he was sent to the Israeli hospital when he informed them that he was being transferred cuffed and sitting in a wheelchair. (...)
