Statement from the Palestinian Prisoner Club, Hebron
The Palestinian Prisoner Club in Hebron holds the Apartheid Israeli authorities responsible for the life of Mutassim Taessser Alwawi
Mutassim Taessser Alwawi, 20 years old, was arrested in the early hours of the morning, Wednesday 12 February 2014, from his home in Ein Qashqalh, Haret neighbourhood of the city of Hebron. Around 60 soldiers stormed Mutassim’s home attacking Mutassim and ransacking the house. Mutassim’s mother bravely tried to protect her then sleeping son from the invading soldiers but they detained her in another room.
Mutassim suffers from a head wound, inflicted by the Army firing a rubber coated steel bullet at his head in 2006, narrowly avoiding death. He has been through several surgeries, after the bullet lodged in his skull, leaving him with permanent neurological damage. He was also hit with another rubber coated steel bullet in his face earlier this year, fracturing his nose.
A doctor accompanied the invading soldiers and forcible injected Mutassim, putting him in a wheelchair before transferring him to an Army jeep, despite Mutassim’s obvious distress and previous injuries.
Mutassim requires daily treatment as a result of his previous injuries. His mother does not know where Mutassim has been taken or for what reason.
The Palestinian Prisoner Club, Hebron, holds the Apartheid authorities responsible for Mutassim’s health and demands his immediate release.
