JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israel has extended the house arrest of a mentally challenged Palestinian who has been under home confinement for four months, relatives said.

Ahmad Dawuod Obeid, 19, was beaten and arrested in August by undercover Israeli forces in al-Issawiya near Jerusalem.

Obeid was in court several times and was charged with throwing rocks at Israeli forces until he was released on bail on the condition of remaining under house arrest.

Obeid’s father said his son’s mental and psychological condition is worsening each day.

“We prevent him from leaving the house in order not to be re-arrested. He has become neurotic, he does not eat, he is difficult, and despite his condition the occupation insisted to arrest and try him.”

The father added: “He does not know what a police officer, a court, or house arrest are. These terms are above his mental capacity.”

The teenager's father added that he showed the courts paperwork proving his mental condition, but a court-appointed psychiatrist said he had no disabilities.

Addameer prisoners’ group lawyer Mohammad Mahmoud said that the detention of his client was extended until March 6, 2014 in order to assess him again.

“Ahmad Obeid suffers from mental disabilities, he is a mute, and he was recently presented to a court psychiatrist who said in his report that Ahmad Obeid is sane, and has no mental or psychological condition to prevent his trial,” Mahmoud added.

'... but a court-appointed psychiatrist said he had no disabilities...' Yawn. Zionists always lie. Unless you enjoy hearing lies, why would anyone listen to them?

Yes! "Sane".That's what many'appointed' quacks say about our own PTSD'd,TBI'd,shell-shocked,emotionally-psychologically-physically traumatized AMERICAN troops/veterans when they need help,after serving the interests of invasive,occupying,oppressive corporate regimes.They deny them a diagnosis so they don't have to treat them.If Ahmad is mute(which can also be symptom of shock or Autism)how did they evaluate his appropriate responses or diagnose,AT ALL?
