UPDATED: Sept 7 @ 0613

A Palestinian Detainees’ Committee lawyer, Khaled Mahajna, has reported that after Israeli forces wired and detonated the front door of their home, on Saturday, both Palestinian brothers remain in critical condition.

Mahajna stated that the young men, Ahmad, 22, and Mohammad Jad’oun, 27, from the Jenin refugee camp, in the northern West Bank, are currently being treated for severe wounds, in the Intensive Care Unit of the Israeli al-Afula hospital.

As a result of the Israeli army bomb detonated at the entrance of the home, Mohammad suffered severe injuries to his left leg, said Mahjna, adding that the youth underwent extensive surgery where doctors attempted to remove all the bomb fragments from the leg.

He further stated that Mohammad underwent a second surgery, on Sunday, and that a massive section of the leg was blown off by the blast, adding that the youth has suffered an excessive amount of blood loss.

The younger brother Ahmad also remains in the Intensive Care Unit, having suffered profound trauma from the explosion, mainly in his face and neck. The young man has undergone two major surgeries for his face, and is scheduled to undergo at least one additional surgery to repair his neck wounds.

The Jad’oun family asserted that, immediately after the Israeli soldiers detonated the door, they immediately dragged the two brothers onto the ground, despite their extensive bleeding and injuries.

The Palestinian Detainees’ Committee issued a statement denouncing this new Israeli crime against the entire family, and the callous manner in which the soldiers treated the seriously wounded civilians, with utter contempt, in violation of the right to life and bodily integrity.

The Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) declared that it holds the Israeli occupation responsible for the lives of the two young men, whom are former prisoners.

The PPS maintained that this crime is only one of the protracted Israeli assaults and attacks being carried out on a daily basis.
