RAMALLAH, Tuesday, November 08, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces today detained during a military raid into Jalazon refugee camp, north of the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, a Palestinian who was injured several years ago from army gunfire and despite his suffering from a nervous breakdown.
Nur Elayyan told WAFA that the soldiers arrested his 20-year-old brother, Riyad, during an early morning raid of the camp although the latter was still recovering from a gunshot injury in the feet and suffered from a nervous breakdown during detention.
He said a large army force blew up the door to their house in the camp and forced all the family members into one room before detaining his ill brother.
Elayyan said his family was informed by the Palestinian Military Liaison office that Riyad suffered during the arrest from the effect of his foot injury and also had a nervous breakdown, which required the soldiers to wrap him up in aluminum foil and carry him on a stretcher with total disregard to his serious health condition.
Video footage showed several soldiers carrying Riyad on a stretcher and taking him into custody.
Riyad is a former prisoner who spent two-and-a-half years in Israeli jails for resisting the occupation. He sustained an injury in his foot after being hit by army gunfire at the camp entrance five years ago.
