OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, -- Palestinian prisoner Ra'ed Mohammed Abu Hammad was found dead in his cell in the Israeli Eichel prison on Friday, the Ahrar center for prisoners' studies and human rights announced.

Director of the center Fuad Al-Khafsh said in a press release that Hammad, 31, is the 198th prisoner to die in Israeli jails.

He added that Hammad, who was serving a ten-year sentence, suffered several diseases but was still held in isolation by the Israeli prisons authority (IPA) that did not heed calls for his release because of his health condition and kept him in solitary confinement.

Khafsh urged the international institutions to swiftly intervene to save the isolated and sick prisoners in Israeli jails, demanding an autopsy on the martyr's body to determine the exact cause of his death.

Hamas movement in the West Bank issued a statement on Saturday blaming the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) and the IPA for the death of Hammad in Eichel prison in Beer Sheba.

It said that the death of Hammad on the day of the Palestinian prisoner makes it imperative on all Palestinian factions and Arab leaders to prioritize the issue of those prisoners.

Detained ex-minister Wasfi Qabaha charged that the death of Hammad was the natural result of deliberate medical neglect on the part of the IPA.

He said in a press statement on Saturday from his prison cell that human rights groups must pressure the IPA into opening its jail before inspection, especially to examine the sick detainees who suffer various diseases including cancer.

Dr. Salah Al-Bardawil, a Hamas leader and MP, said that Hammad, from occupied Jerusalem, died due to constant physical and psychological torture.

He urged the world community to put on trial all those responsible for such crimes against the prisoners.

Meanwhile, Khalil Al-Hayya, a political bureau member of Hamas, told a rally organized by his movement in Gaza on Friday in solidarity with prisoners that Palestinian resistance was fully entitled to trek all means to liberate Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails.

He expressed absolute dismay at the world's silence toward the IOA crimes against those prisoners.
