Abbas: Israel's Arrogance Led to Death of Prisoner.

RAMALLAH, April 2, 2013 (WAFA) -- President Mahmoud Abbas said Tuesday that the arrogance of the Israeli government stopped in the way of responding to Palestinian efforts to secure the release of the prisoner Maysara Abu Hamdiya, who died in prison due to medical negligence by the Israel Prison Service.

He said at the opening of a meeting for his Fatah Central Committee in Ramallah that the Palestinian people were shocked when they heard of Abu Hamdiya's death of cancer in the Israeli prison.

"We tried working on Abu Hamdiya's release due to his medical condition, but the Israeli government refused to respond to the PA's efforts in releasing him, which led to his death," he said.

"This shows the intransigence and the arrogance of the Israeli government especially toward prisoners of freedom held in its jails," he said.
