M.Y | DOP -

Israeli occupation authorities on Sunday, July 24, released the Palestinian prisoner Mohammed Obeid from the town of Anza in Jenin, following 18 months of detention, in which he was subjected to torture that caused him mental disorders and memory loss.

The family of Obeid confirmed that their son did not suffer from any health troubles before his arrest, and they have been shocked by his health conditions now. Obeid was found unable to recognize his parents or any of his family members

The Palestinian Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees held the Israeli occupation authorities fully responsible for the life of the released prisoner, Mohammed Obeid, who was released on Sunday and thrown at the Sabaa Crossing in a difficult and painful health condition.

Mohammed Obaid, a father of three children, was transferred upon his release to Alia Governmental Hospital in Jenin. He has spent 18 months in Israeli prisons, in which he was subject to physical and psychological torture.

On a similar note, on Sunday the Prisoners Information Office reported that a number of prisoners in Ofer Prison were beaten, as a result of which one of them was injured.

The office indicated that prisoners in Ofer prison were subjected to a barbaric assault by the occupation prisons administration, noting that after the assault by the occupation on the prisoners, a state of tension prevailed in the prison sections.

He said: “The occupation prisons administration decided to empty Section 12 of the Ofer prison to conduct inspections inside it and transfer the prisoners to another place.”

It should be noted that the occupation forces escalated their repressive measures against prisoners in its prisons, through isolation, searches, and banning of visits, among others.
