The Detainees Media Committee reported that a Palestinian detainee was seriously wounded due to extreme torture by Israeli interrogators at the Salem detention camp in the northern part of the West Bank.The detainee was identified as Hatheefa Farid Ziyada from the northern West Bank city of Nablus.
He was repeatedly beaten to several parts of his body, mainly to his head, leading a severe injury in his eye, likely leading to internal bleeding.
The committee voiced an appeal to different human rights groups and international humanitarian organizations asking them to intervene and save the lives of hundreds of detainees who are being tortured abused in Israeli interrogation facilities.
The detainee was held at the Negev detention camp, in the Negev desert, and was informed by the administration that he is being moved to Hadarim Prison.
He found out later on that this was a lie as he was moved to the infamous Petah Tikva interrogation center.
He was repeatedly imprisoned by Israel during the first Intifada and was also imprisoned during the second Intifada. In 2004 he was kidnapped again and spent three years in administrative detention without charges or trial.
Ziyada was released in 2007 but was kidnapped again just before the end of the same year and remained under administrative detention since then.
