RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — Israeli guards fractured the hand of a Palestinian in Rimon jail who protested the death of a detainee by lowering the Israeli flag, the prisoner’s lawyer said Thursday.
After the death of Maysara Abu Hamdiyeh, a Palestinian with cancer who died in Israeli custody, Abdul-Rahman Karajah “protested in his own way climbing a roof with barbed wires before he lowered the Israeli flag,” said his lawyer Muhannad Karajah.
Israeli guards from the Nahshon unit immediately assaulted Abdul-Rahman Karajah and fractured his hand, the lawyer said.
In a letter passed to his lawyer, the prisoner said he was interrogated for over 12 hours and that others were being interrogated “for 20 hours and more.”
Detainees are being held in a small, “disgusting” cell and given food which “looks like anything other than food,” he wrote.
The prisoner said Israeli interrogators accused him of contacting the Lebanese Hezbollah movement.
