A female prisoner in the Israeli Hasharon prison called Shireen Hasan from the Bethlehem city appealed to human and prisoners" rights organizations to intervene to save her from losing her eyesight after an Israeli interrogator beat her severely and struck her head against the wall many times.

Shireen said that she is gradually losing her vision especially in the right eye and is suffering severe pain in her head, kidneys and both eyes as a result of the torture, adding that the doctor told her she urgently needs a surgical intervention outside the prison.

For its part, the Nafha society for the defense of human and prisoners" rights appealed to international human rights organizations to pressure the IOA to release Noura Al-Hashlamon, 37, a mother of six children, from Israeli jails. Hashlamon has been on a hunger strike for several weeks in protest at renewing her administrative detention without any charge or intention to bring her to trial.

The society explained that the Israeli prisons authority transferred Noura to the Ramle isolation prison and barred her from changing her clothes. The detainee"s weight decreased to 46 kilograms and she was lately transferred to the Jalama isolation, Nafha said, adding that her health now is deteriorating very fast.

Noura threatened to continue her strike until she is released and allowed to return to her six children who live without their parents.
