PALESTINIAN FEMALE PRISONER SUFFERS HARSH CONDITIONS
The Palestinian female injured prisoner Jihan Hashima is suffering difficult health and detention conditions in Ramla prison clinic, the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) revealed Monday.
Following his visit to Ramla prison clinic, PPS’s lawyer affirmed that Jihan is not able to walk by herself.
She uses a wheelchair to move, the lawyer said.
She also suffers different health problems including high cholesterol, hypothyroidism, blood clots, and vision difficulties, according to the lawyer.
Jihan, 37, was arrested on December 30, 2016 after she was shot and injured in her left leg by Israeli soldiers. She was later taken to hospital and underwent a lower-limb transplant operation.
Jihan, a mother of three children, is still held in Ramla prison clinic amid very difficult detention conditions.
