OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, -- The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) has refused to allow a team of doctors to check on the condition of Sheikh Jamal Abul Haija, who is serving 9 life sentences plus 80 years in IOA jails.
The family of the Sheikh said in a statement on Saturday that Abul Haija is suffering from numerous diseases and the Israeli prisons authority (IPA) insists on isolating him since his detention.
The IPA refuses to allow proper treatment for Abul Haija, the family said, holding the IPA fully responsible for his life.
Sheikh Abul Haija, is one of the prominent leaders of Hamas in the West Bank, and was one of the leaders in defending the Jenin refugee camp against the Israeli occupation forces' attack in April 2002.
