Raddad’s family marks his birthday with calls for release

moatassem-birthdayThe family of Palestinian prisoner Moatassem Raddad, suffering from bowel cancer that has spread through his body, celebrated his birthday in a public event in solidarity with Raddad and his fellow prisoners on November 11.

The commemoration of Raddad’s birthday became a solidarity rally with the sick prisoners inside Israeli jails, attended by family members of Palestinian prisoners, student activists, and Palestinian leaders in Tulkarem.

Raddad’s cancer has recently spread throughout his body. His family is campaigning for his release at this critical time. His mother demanded that official Palestinian bodies and international organizations carry out their responsibility to her son and his fellow prisoners.

To call for release for Raddad and his fellow sick prisoners, take action here.
