Palestinian hunger-striker loses ability to breath

Days of Palestine, Jerusalem -Palestinian hunger-striking journalist Mohamed al-Qeeq, who has been on hunger-strike for 86 days, lost ability to breath on Thursday night, sources said.

Al-Qeeq’s companion in the Israeli hospital freed prisoner Mohamed Kana’neh said: “He has a severe stroke that caused him lose ability to breath between Wednesday 11pm and Thursday 5am.”

He said that Al-Qeeq also lost hearing, speaking and sight. “We were unable to communicate with him, as well as doctors were unable to deal with his condition,” the companion said.

Comparing his condition to the previous night, he said: “It was more difficult. He was even unable to communicate through his eyes.”

Despite his serious condition, Kana’neh said, he is still refusing to accept any help from any Israeli doctors.

Israeli Supreme Court refused on Wednesday to turn Al-Qeeq to a Palestinian hospital in order to have himself monitored by Palestinian doctors.
