“The occupation’s inhumane behavior towards the prisoners through its force-feeding law, the administrative detention law and the medical neglect policy confirms its racism and brutality towards our heroic prisoners,” Hamas spokesman Abdul-Latif al-Qanou said in a press release on Sunday.

Spokesman Qanou called on human rights and medical groups to assume their responsibilities and save the lives of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails. He stressed the need to curb Israel’s savage and cruel practices against the detainees in its prisons.
