#PalHunger | Israeli soldiers assault & beat up detained hunger striker Safadi

[ PIC 02/08/2012 – 11:00 AM ]

NABLUS, (PIC)– Israeli soldiers of the Nahshon unit broke into the jail cell of hunger striker Hassan Safadi on Wednesday and beat him up.

Safadi’s family said that the soldiers burst into the room of their son and beat him without any reason, noting that Safadi was held in isolation as a punishment for his hunger strike.

They said that Safadi was bruised all over his body and was hospitalized after the assault.

The family held the Israeli occupation authority responsible for the life of their son especially when he is on his 43rd day of hunger strike.

The family said that the Israeli prison authority was moving Safadi from one cell to another every few days in a bid to exhaust him.

The essayists explore the history of torture in Israel, the daily challenges that practitioners face in seeking accountability for torture and CIDT in Israel, and the changing face of torture.
