Palestinian child prisoner Anas Hamarsheh, 17, has reportedly lost the ability to walk; his family have repeatedly warned of the severe dangers to his health in Israeli prison as he suffers from a rare condition that requires treatment.

Asra Voice reported that Anas, 17, from the town of Yabad near Jenin has lost the ability to walk for several days and that his health condition is dangerous. His family has urged his release; he is held in Megiddo prison awaiting a sentence from the military courts.

Leila Hamarsheh, Anas’ sister, said that she had received the troubling news about his health situation and a sudden decline that has made him unable to stand. His family notes that he has not been provided with treatment and that when he was taken to the Ramle prison clinic, his foot was scanned but no treatment was provided. After three days in the Ramle prison clinic he was returned to Megiddo with no prescription or treatment plan.

He suffers from osteonecrosis of the hip and requires treatment; he is in danger of losing his ability to walk. One leg is shorter than the other and he has difficulty running or playing sports; his leg is also at risk of infection.

Anas’ father, Adnan Hamarsheh, uses a wheelchair after he suffered a series of strokes in 2014 while under Israeli interrogation. After two days of hospitalization, he was returned to prison; he was not charged and instead ordered imprisoned for six months under administrative detention. Since his release, he has been denied permission to travel to receive further treatment.

Anas is one of over 350 Palestinian children imprisoned in Israeli jails; each year, approximately 700 children are brought before Israeli military courts. The vast majority of imprisoned Palestinian children have reported physical and psychological abuse under interrogation, denial of access to family members or lawyers and other forms of cruel and inhumane treatment in violation of the Rights of the Child.

There are a number of other seriously ill Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons, including cases like that of Israa Jaabis, seriously wounded and provided with insufficent treatment that daily increase her suffering; there are also cases like that of Mohammed Ahmed Khatib, 47, who is reportedly unable to walk after receiving a botched injection for pain in his side.  Hussein Hosni Atallah, 57, from the Balata refugee camp in Nablus, was denied early release despite a severe deterioration in his health. He has metastatic cancer in his lungs, spine, pancreas, liver and head and is held in the Ramle prison clinic.

Transcription made from The Miko's Speeches

This is a beautiful church so once again thank you to the pastor for allowing us to use this is really beautiful and thank you all for being here tonight and and for caring enough to take the time and listen and participate and be active I always begin my remarks with a disclaimer and that disclaimer is this if anybody here came hoping to hear a balanced presentation then they're going to be sorely disappointed I say this because a lot of things that you're about to hear tonight are difficult to hear and also because I don't believe that a balanced presentation on this topic is possible anybody that cares enough to speak about this probably has a very strong opinion one way or the other almost everybody has feelings and strong emotions on this issue one way or the other for me it's deeply personal and the issue itself is not a balanced issue there is no balance in this issue so therefore I say this because there cannot be a balanced presentation on this and I think if anybody claims that their presentation is balanced they're either misleading themselves or the misleading of their audience this whole issue of Israel and Palestine is covered in so much myth and there's so much there's so much double standard when people talk about this issue and I'll give you two examples

Don't know if you heard Bibi Netanyahu speech at the United Nations I heard it not live but after he actually delivered it and he began and he began it with probably the two most striking examples of myth and double standard and he began by talking about the right of return of the Jews to their ancient homeland and of course the Jews that returned so-called returned to their homeland were not exactly the the same Jews who were expelled from their homeland right because these were expelled a couple of thousand years before that these were not their descendants either because they this is business has been a very long time so these are people the people that actually came back so to speak are people that claim some kind of a heritage some kind of a connection a relationship to the ancient Hebrews and they claimed that they had the right to return to their homeland and this was this is what Zionism was about and this is expected this was you know accepted by the world as the right they had the right to return now if we talk about the right of return of one nation you'd expect that there would be if we accept it as a principle than
