OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli Magistrate’s Court has extended the arrest of a disabled Palestinian for 15 additional days despite his difficult health status.

Ahmed Dawoud Obaid’s arrest was extended for 15 days although his father has provided the court with medical reports proving his mental disability.

The Israeli prosecutor presented an indictment against Obaid accusing him of throwing stones at Israeli cars.

Obaid was arrested after being beaten severely by Israeli forces despite being dumb and mentally ill.

Meanwhile, Ahrar center for prisoners’ studies said that eight Palestinian prisoners from Gaza Strip are still detained in Israeli jails before Oslo accords.

The human rights center stated that the eight prisoners, sentenced to life terms, are waiting to be included among the second phase of prisoners to be released as an Israeli goodwill gesture to resume talks.

As part of the deal to resume these talks, Israel agreed to release 104 long-term Palestinian prisoners, in four phases, as a so-called “confidence-building” measure and to encourage progress of the talks. Most of the prisoners have nearly completed their sentences.
