Two Arab Israeli nurses who posed hugging a hunger-striking Hamas prisoner at the Kaplan Clinical Centre in Rehovot will not be fired just after they expressed regret for their steps, the healthcare facility explained Monday.
The two ended up filmed on Sunday posing with Miqdad Qawasmeh, a Hamas member who has served sentences in Israeli jail in the previous and is at present getting held in administrative detention, without having currently being billed.
In the online video, the two can be observed clasping Qawasmeh’s arms and hugging him, prior to posing,
The nurses were summoned for a disciplinary listening to in the medical center and were being dressed down more than the incident. The clinic reported they understood the severity of their actions and expressed regret.
Israeli authorities had not put Qawasmeh below guard thanks to his weakened condition.
The International Pink Cross last week expressed problem for Qawasmeh’s and a different prisoner’s wellbeing, declaring that there were being fears “about most likely irreversible implications of such prolonged starvation strike to their well being and life.”

Monday marked the 82nd working day of Qawasmeh’s hunger strike — a protest more than his extended incarceration with out trial.
The other prisoner Kayed Nammoura is approaching his 90th working day. 5 other Palestinian detainees are also on starvation strike.
Many Palestinians have received liberty by way of starvation strikes in the latest several years from currently being held in administrative detention, a controversial Israeli policy in which it holds suspects without the need of demand for months at a time.
