(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Palestinian prisoner Shadi Mousa is suffering from excruciating pain and needs head surgery to extract a bullet from his skull, his family in Marka village, south of Jenin, said.
The family said that Mousa, 35, was shot by the Israeli occupation forces during his arrest ten years ago.
They said that Mousa, who is serving a 25-year sentence, is in a very serious condition, adding that the Israeli prison service (IPS) refuses to allow the surgery and only gives him sedatives.
The family appealed to human rights groups to pressure the IPS into allowing proper treatment of Mousa, who also suffers from heart problems and underwent two heart surgeries.
The family held the Israeli authorities fully responsible for his life due to the refusal to treat him despite his serious condition.
