Face-Disfigured Palestinian Woman Faces Medical Neglect in Israeli Jail

Ramallah, MINA – Palestinian prisoner Israa Jaabis, aged 32, has sounded the alarm over the systematic medical negligence she has been made to endure in the Israeli HaSharon dungeon.

A lawyer from the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society quoted the detainee following a prison visit as stating that she urgently needs to undergo cosmetic surgeries in her hands, ears, face, and teeth to fix severe deformity, PIC reported.

The detainee also needs a burn-soothing suit and drugs to alleviate her pains. Prisoner Jaabis, from Occupied Jerusalem and the mother of a child, was kidnapped by Israeli forces on October 10, 2015, after they opened fire at her car, blowing it up.

As a result, she sustained severe burns that led to disfigurements all over her body. She also had her fingers amputated.

Jaabis is serving an 11-year-sentence in Israeli occupation jails.(R/R04/RS5)
