Ill Palestinian prisoner dies because of ‘deliberate medical negligence’ in Israeli jail

Fares Baroud, a resident of the al-Shati refugee camp in the northern part of the Gaza Strip, died on Wednesday evening, only hours after being suddenly transferred to intensive care from Ramon prison in the Israeli-occupied territories. The late 51-year-old was suffering from a number of health conditions, including a hernia and liver disease, and had repeatedly spoken about medical neglect and denial of necessary health treatment to Palestinian inmates. Baroud had earlier lost 80 percent of his eyesight due to a vision problem and Israeli prison officials had delayed the required treatment for four consecutive months. Israeli authorities had also denied him of family visits for 18 years. Baroud was arrested in 1991, and was supposed to be released in 2013 as part of negotiations between the Palestinian Authority and the Tel Aviv regime. Israeli officials, however, reneged on the agreement, refusing to release the final 30 prisoners, including him. Director of the Palestinian Prisoners Media Office, Nahed al-Fakhouri, described Baroud’s death at the hands of Israeli officials as a “heinous crime,” stating that it reflects the criminal policies pursued by the Israel Prison Service against Palestinian detainees. Moreover, Hamas resistance movement held the Israeli regime fully responsible for the death of the Palestinian prisoner. It argued that the deliberate medical neglect policy pursued by Israeli prison officials against Palestinian inmates amounts to a “crime against humanity,” calling on international humanitarian and legal organizations to act urgently to save the lives of thousands of Palestinian prisoners. Hamas further stressed that Israel’s heinous crimes will never break the Palestinian detainees’ will. Some 7,000 Palestinians are currently behind bars in 17 Israeli prisons and detention centers, according to reports.  More than 400 Palestinians are being held without trial under so-called administrative detention, which is a policy according to which Palestinian inmates are kept in Israeli detention facilities without trial or charge. Some Palestinian prisoners have been held in administrative detention for up to 11 years. Furthermore, a total of 13 Palestinian lawmakers are currently held in Israeli detention facilities, nine of whom under administrative detention.

As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
