Prisoner hospitalized after assault by Israeli prison guards

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian prisoner held in a Beersheba prison for driving without a license has been hospitalized following an assault by Israeli prison guards, his family said on Friday.

Jihad Abd al-Rahman al-Taweel, a 47-year-old Palestinian from Jerusalem, was taken from the prison to the nearby Soroka Hospital two weeks ago after passing out, a relative of the man told Ma'an.

At the time, Israeli special forces stormed a ward in the jail and assaulted prisoners using pepper spray, and al-Taweel passed out during the assault, the relative said.

A week after al-Taweel was hospitalized, the Israeli prison service asked the family to sign discharge papers, but the family refused to sign until they could ensure his situation had stabilized enough for him to be discharged.

The relative said that al-Taweel, who is a father of five, was serving a three-month sentence in Beersheba prison after Israeli police caught him driving a vehicle without a driver's license.



Correction: The name of the hospitalized prisoner was originally written as Jihad Abd al-Rahman. In fact, the man's name is Jihad Abd al-Rahman al-Taweel.

He should never be allowed on the roads, I bet his vehicle was uninsured as well.

Don't sign the discharge papers, get a lawyer & sue the authorities. Negligence, pure & simple. Disgraceful, jailed for a minor offence & ends up hospitalised in a high dependency state. Try to get this out on U Tube, let the world see what happens in Zionist jails.

Tania, should be jailed for making such an asinine comment. I bet she doesn't know what human compassion is.

driving without a license gets you 3 months in jail and nearly killed? this is Israeli 'law and order'? it's racist discrimination and violation of human rights. Tania has no compassion or care for the life or for the rights of this man and his family, or probably any Palestinian, with or without a driver's license. What a disgusting comment Tania, shame on you.

@3 You clearly have never been hit and hospitalized, by an uninsured road use, driving a vehicle without a drivers' license.

To Florence N #2: 'Don't sign the discharge papers, get a lawyer & sue the authorities...' You appear to have overlooked where this took place.

To Angelica #3: 'Tania, should be jailed for making such an asinine comment. I bet she doesn't know what human compassion is.' Zionists don't. On the contrary.
