[ PIC 29/12/2012 – 01:56 PM ]

BETHLEHEM, (PIC)– A Palestinian prisoner from Doheisheh refugee camp in Bethlehem, held in Raymond detention center, decided to file a complaint against an Israeli jailer who had deliberately caused the amputation of parts of his fingers.

The incident took place while the prisoner Khalid Mohammed Ahmed Khalawi had been trying to fix a door of a room in the jail, as part of his work, when a jailer saw him behind the door and deliberately pushed the door with his foot with all his strength, which resulted in cutting parts of two of the prisoner’s fingers.

The captive told a lawyer for the Palestinian prisoner’s society that the prison administration did not treat his injury immediately, noting that he was transferred to Soroka Hospital after five hours from the incident and that the doctors started treating his wounds two hours after his arrival to the hospital.

The prisoner Khalid Khalawi has been detained since 11th March, 2002, he has been sentenced to thirteen years.
