IMEMC & Agencies: The Hurryyat Legal Center has reported that the Israeli Prison Authority is denying Palestinian detainee, Samer Al-Eesawy, access to urgently needed medical attention and medications, and refuses to grant him medical checkups.

Al-Eesawy held an open-ended hunger strike for nine months demanding an end to his illegal detention without charges or trial.

He started his strike after Israeli soldiers kidnapped him in direct violation of the Prisoner Swap deal that secured his release, in October of 2011, along with more than a 1000 detainees in return for the release of Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit, who was captured by the resistance in Gaza in June of 2006.

Al-Eesawy 33, told his lawyer that he has been denied access to medical attention and urgently needed checkups since he was moved to the Shatta Prison after he ended his strike. He said that, two weeks ago, he started having pain in his kidneys, but was never seen by any specialized physician, and added that the doctors instructed the prison administration to provide him with special meals, but the prescribed meals were rarely granted.

Hurryyat held Israel fully responsible for the life of Al-Eesawy, and voiced an urgent appeal to international human rights groups to ensure Israel provides him with the urgently needed medical attention and treatment.
