Ramallah, 21 Jumadil Akhir 1436/10 April 2015 (MINA) –  The Israeli administration of Hadassah hospital in occupied Jerusalem on Wednesday (8/4) refused to receive a Palestinian patient, who had been released recently from an Israeli jail after a sharp decline in his health condition.

According to the Palestinian Prisoner Society, 22-year-old ex-detainee Jaafar Awad was transferred to al-Mizan hospital in al-Khalil after his health condition deteriorated further and reached a serious stage, Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.

At al-Mizan hospital, doctors had to recommend his transfer to Hadassah hospital due to his critical health status, but the latter declined his admission.

Awad was released from an Israeli jail three months ago after his health deteriorated noticeably as a result of his suffering from acute pneumonia.

Before his last release, Awad had already served prison terms twice in Israeli jails. (T/P006/R03)
