Medic shot in head, tied to hospital bed in Israeli Hospital

Israeli soldiers shot a Palestinian medic during an invasion to Balata refugee camp, in the West Bank city of Nablus two days ago; the medic is currently hospitalized at an Israeli hospital with handcuffs tightened, and his two feet bound to his “recovery” bed.The medic was identified as Ihab Hashim Mansour.

Mansour is one among dozens of residents who were injured during a major invasion carried out by the Israeli army in Balata refugee camp, east of Nablus, last week.

Mansour was shot in his head, on February 28 as he, and other medics and medical teams, were attempting to aid the injured residents and transfer the dead bodies to hospital.

Lawyer Yassin, of the Prisoners Supporters Society (PSS), managed to visit Mansour and demanded the Israeli hospital to untie him; soldiers “guarding” the injured medic said that they have higher orders to keep him tied.

Mansour was working a a volunteer medic during the invasion.  

The Society strongly condemned the inhuman treatment practiced against Mansour.

Yassin added that the PSS contacted the International Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, and the Israeli High Court of Justice.
