AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Prisoner Muhammad al-Qeiq has lost 25 kg of his overall weight and is ceaselessly vomiting blood, his wife told the PIC.

Speaking in an exclusive statement to the PIC, al-Qeiq’s wife, Fayhaa Shalash, raised alarm bells over the sharp exacerbation rocking her husband’s health status as his hunger-strike has entered its 54th day.

Shalash appealed to all humanitarian and media institutions, along with the International Federation of Journalists, to urgently step in and work on releasing her husband before it is too late.

The wife quoted lawyer Abu Esneineh, who visited al-Qeiq in the hospital, as stating that the prisoner has lost 25 kg and goes through frequent blackouts.

Prisoner al-Qeiq is also unable to stand up on his own and walk on his feet. His left hand has been tied to the hospital bed.

Shalash added that her husband refuses to take vitamins and that he has been vomiting and urinating blood.

She urged the international human rights bodies to assign a follow-up committee to keep tabs on her husband’s critical health condition.
