World Vision Gaza director detained in Israel is in serious health condition from torture: commission


RAMALLAH, Saturday, April 11, 2020 (WAFA) – A Palestinian who worked with the American World Vision organization is in serious health condition due to torture by his Israeli interrogators, today said the Palestinian Prisoners’ Affairs Commission.

It said Mohammad Halabi, 42, from Jabalya refugee camp who was in charge of the Gaza Strip office of World Vision, is suffering from serious headaches and have lost hearing and may also lose sight in his eyes due to the torture he underwent after his arrest in Israel.

Halabi appeared in Israeli courts 135 times since his arrest in June 2016 under the pretext he was involved in transferring World Vision money to Palestinian political factions in Gaza. So far there is no tangible evidence proving this charge.
