The Ahrar Center for Detainees’ Studies and Human Rights reported that former detainee, Hamed Al-Amoudy, from the northern West Bank city of Nablus, is currently in a critical health condition due to torture subjected to by Israeli interrogators over the last four months.
The center said that Israeli interrogators used different interrogation methods, including force bending his back, an issue that left him unable to conduct even a simple physical task.
In a sworn testimony made to the Ahrar Center, Al-Amoudy said that he was interrogated and tortured for 120 days, was forced to stand for several hours, was forced to bend his knees for extended periods, interrogators bending his back in different positions, and deprived him from sleeping for extended periods.
Fuad Al-Khoffash, head of the Ahrar Center called on the international community and human rights groups around the world to visit Al-Amoudy and record his sworn testimony on the cruel and inhumane torture and abuse he faced.
It is worth mentioning that Al-Amoudy spent more than nine years in Israeli detention camps, was deprived of his visitation rights and never received the professional medical attention he needed.
On Thursday, former political prisoner, Zoheir Lubbada, 38 years old, died on at the Intensive Care Unit of the National Government Hospital in Nablus, only one week after he was released from an Israeli prison suffering numerous health complications due to medical negligence in prison clinics.
