Israeli authorities denies Palestinian prisoner life-saving treatment

"Israeli prison officials have refused to release a Bethlehem man suffering from kidney failure and severe kidney stones for treatment, the Palestinian Detainees Society said Friday.

According to the society and the Red Crescent, Issam Ash-Sha’er has been denied permission for proper treatment and has been forced to take only basic medications to delay the inevitable surgery on the kidney. The pills, they added, are now beginning to cause permanent damage to the man's stomach.

The Red Crescent and the Detainees Society both urge for the man’s immediate release."
