June 11, 2012 Palestinian information Center 

RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- The administration of Assaf Harofeh hospital told the Israeli prison authority that prisoner Mahmoud Sarsak, a Palestinian soccer player on hunger strike for 88 days, is dying and that it cannot be responsible for his death in the coming hours.
Human rights lawyers visited Sarsak on Monday in hospital and affirmed that his health status is more serious than some people think and has become hopeless.
Prisoner Sarsak was transferred on Sunday evening to Assaf Harofeh hospital after a serious decline in his health condition and last Thursday, he was transferred from the hospital of Ramla jail to Meir hospital.
Mahmoud Sarsak was born on January 20, 1987 in Rafah city south of Gaza and is still unmarried. He is a professional national soccer player and a university student majoring in computer programming at the third level.
