Riots over the death of a Palestinian prisoner in an Israeli jail rampaged across the West Bank and Gaza this week. One of the detainees RT managed to reach said 25 of his fellow inmates had cancer and were being denied treatment.

The prisoner, whose anonymity is preserved for security reasons, believes medical assistance in the Israeli jails is withheld on purpose, “to break the will of the detainees.” Speaking to RT, he described the negligence sick Palestinian detainees are faced with.

We suffer from an incredibly low standard of medical assistance. Among those detained here, there are at least 25 people who suffer from cancer – and they’re not getting the treatment they need.

A Palestinian child was kidnapped by Israeli cops at one of the gates of the al-Aqsa Mosque in Occupied Jerusalem as tens of thousands of Palestinian worshipers performed Friday’s noon prayer at the holy site.

According to local sources, the child was kidnapped by Israeli policemen from one of the entrance gates to the al-Aqsa Mosque.
