Ramallah, 27 Rabiul Awal 1437/7 January 2016 (MINA) – Palestinian journalist Mohamed al-Qeiq has accused the Israeli administration of Afula hospital of attempting to slowly kill him since he started his hunger strike more than 40 days ago.
A Palestinian lawyer, who visited him on Tuesday in the hospital, affirmed that journalist Qeiq was insistent on continuing his hunger strike until his jailers released him or let him die.
The lawyer said that the prisoner was in bad physical shape as he was shackled to a bed in the hospital. The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
As a result of his prolonged hunger strike, the journalist suffers from serious health complications, including blood in urine, severe headache and dizziness, and persistent stomachaches, according to the lawyer.
The Israeli occupation forces kidnapped journalist Qeiq, who works as a reporter for al-Majd satellite channel, from his home in Ramallah city on November 21, 2015. (T/P011/R07)
