Medical letter writing action: Israel and the Occupied Territories: Dr Rabah Hasan 'Abd al-'Aziz Mohanna
Dr Mohanna, Vice-President of the Arab Medical Association in Gaza, was arrested on 29 October 1991, the eve of the Madrid Peace conference. A six- month administrative detention order was served against him and it is believed that the reason for his arrest may have been his publicly- expressed reservations about the Peace Conference. No date for an appeal has been set. Dr Mohanna is reported to suffer form chronic gall stones, a duodenal ulcer and chronic bronchitis, for which he should be receiving medical care. He is currently held in the Ketziot detention centre. No information is available on his present state of health.
