The New ArabProtests hit West Bank after cancer-stricken Palestinian dies in Israeli detention ‘due to medical negligence’

The head of the Palestinian Commission of Detainees' Affairs, Qadri Abu Bakr, confirmed to The New Arab’s Arabic-language service that Abu Diyak died at dawn on Tuesday, in the hospital of Israel’s Ramla prison.

Abu Diyak had been diagnosed with intestinal cancer in 2015. His condition subsequently deteriorated, which Palestinian media say is in part due to medical mistakes at the hospital in southern Israel where he had surgery to remove part of his large intestine.

"The death of Abu Diyak comes after months of warning [the Israeli authorities] about the seriousness of his condition, that he could die at any moment because of the medical negligence he was subjected to," said Abu Bakr.

Hanan Ashrawi, a senior member of the Palestinian Liberation Organisation, issued a searing condemnation of Abu Diyak's death, calling on Israel to take responsibility for its actions.

Abu Diyak is the 222nd Palestinian prisoner to die as a result of medical negligence since 1967, more than a third of whom did so in custody, Ashrawi pointed out.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder if the original charges under which this man was convicted, were actually based on evidence, or merely trumped-up, because it justified him spending his life in an Israeli prison, simply because he was a Palestinian protester.

Hanan Ashrawi should be the first person on the planet, to realize that Israel will never take responsibility when a Palestinian dies of medical mistakes in an Israeli jail; one has to wonder of the described "medical mistakes" the guy suffered in the hospital in southern Israel, were deliberately staged, to make his cancer advance more quickly, and cause even more physical pain.

Mengele...would have been so proud of this outcome!!
