The Palestinian Commission of Detainees’ and Ex-Detainees’ Affairs has accused the Israeli administration of Ashkelon jail of procrastinating over providing Palestinian prisoner Basem al-Na’san with medical treatment.

According to the Commission, prisoner Na’san suffers from a bullet injury and serious colon and bowel problems, and thus he uses special bags attached to his body for excretion and secretion.

The prisoner, a 24-year-old from the West Bank village of al-Mughayyir, has been waiting long for medical tests and an urgent surgical operation, but the administration of Ashkelon only pays him lip service.
