Obeidat stated that “the suppressive forces of Nahshon have brutally attacked the two imprisoned and disabled brothers Amir and Yassin Mohamed Assad, from village of Kafr Kana in the 1948-occupied territories.”

After visiting the captives in the hospital, the lawyer asserted that they were seriously injured in all the parts of their bodies. They were held in Ramla prison hospital, and then transferred to Assaf Harofe hospital to receive the necessary treatments.

Four other prisoners, under the age of 18, told the lawyer for the Ministry of Prisoners Affairs Heba Msalha, who visited them in Hasharon Prison, that a force composed of 20 members from the Nahshon unit have brutally attacked them in the courtroom in Jerusalem, and hit them using the handcuffs and other metal objects, which caused them several injuries.

After the attack, the four prisoners had been taken to the waiting room where they had been held until 10:00 p.m, when they were returned to Hasharon Prison.
