RAMALLAH, Monday, November 28, 2022 (WAFA) – Mohammad Masarwa, 25, from Tulkarem, lost sight in his right eye after the Israeli occupation soldiers assaulted him during his arrest at his family’s house on January 20 of this year, today said the Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners Affairs Commission.
It said in a statement that Israeli soldiers assaulted Masarwa, currently in Israeli custody, with their rifle butts on his head and forehead, which caused a severe injury to the forehead that led to losing vision in his right eye.
It said Masarwa was supposed to undergo an operation on his eye this month, but that the Israel Prison Services canceled the operation on the pretext that he is going to finish his sentence in April of next year after serving a year-and-a-half in prison for resisting the occupation.
The Commission said Masarwa suffers from severe stomach pains, and that he was given medication for a short period before the prison clinic stopped it without any reason.
Masarwa is a former prisoner who spent 20 months in Israeli prisons.
