Palestinian freedom fighters news: One in a coma for 11 days, two begin 20 years behind bars, former hunger striker infected with coronavirus at an Israeli hospital, administrative detainees continue to boycott Israeli courts


A critically ill Palestinian freedom fighter held in Israel is in a coma for the 11th day and two others have started their 20th year behind bars, as a former hunger striker was diagnosed with coronavirus infection, and some 500 Palestinian administrative detainees continue for the 15th day to boycott Israeli courts are only some of the news about Palestinian freedom fighters held behind Israeli prison bars. Nasser Abu Hmeid, 49, from Amari refugee camp in Ramallah, entered into a coma 11 days ago after suffering a severe inflammation of the lungs as a result of bacterial contamination. Hasan Abed Rabbo, from the Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners Commission, told WAFA today that Abu Hmeid remains critical and is attached to artificial respiration at an Israeli hospital while he is not responding to medication. He said the commission petitioned Israeli courts to force the Israel Prison Services to provide them with more information about Abu Hmeid’s health and to allow his family to visit him but so far there has been no response. At the same time, Palestinians throughout the occupied territories have been waging protest rallies in support of Abu Hmeid demanding his release from prison to get proper treatment. Meanwhile, the Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) said two Palestinian freedom fighters from the Jenin district have begun their 20th year behind bars.
