Abu Zuhri: Israel to blame for death of shocked Palestinian girl

GAZA, (PIC)– Hamas has held Israel responsible for the death of a Palestinian girl who suffered severe psychological trauma after Israeli soldiers blocked her from touching her father during a jail visit.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said in a press statement on Saturday that Israel was to blame for the death of the girl Abeer al-Iskafi after she was psychologically traumatized during a jail visit to her father Yousef al-Iskafi from Al-Khalil.

He called the crime a ”depiction of the inhumane treatment and the policy of deprivation experienced by Palestinians held in Israeli prisons and their families”.

He added that the incident requires increased efforts to promote the prisoners’ cause internationally and induce greater pressure on Israel to stop its maltreatment of Palestinian prisoners and ensure their release.

Abeer al-Iskafi, 11, died Thursday night after a long period of sickness that followed severe psychological trauma she sustained after she was prevented from touching her father during a visit while he was held in Israeli custody.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all?
