The Minister of Prisoner Affairs, Issa Qaraqe, has informed that the health condition of the prisoner Mohammed Qasim Alazraq, 27 years old and Secretary General of Fatah in Aida camp has deteriorated due to the harsh interrogation he has been subjected to.
The Minister told PNN that an investigation would start to find out the circumstances that led to the physical injuries that Mohammed is suffering from. He has shown signs of beating and is also suffering from gastrointestinal problems.
Issa Qaraqe said that the Israeli occupation should be held responsible and should react to the seriousness of Mohammed’s health condition. His lawyer made an official request to have him transferred to a hospital, adding that the captive needed immediate medical attention. The Ministry of Prisoner Affairs will be following this case closely and has already contacted other lawyers and international organizations.
Mohammed Alazraq was arrested in his home last 26th of March, after a large group of Israeli occupation forces stormed into Aida camp at dawn and raided his house.
