February 6, 2014

The 64-year old Taha Shafiq Khayyat is in the intensive care unit at Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital after he was attacked by unknown assailants while coming back from Jaffa Street in West Jerusalem after he had finished some personal matters last Wednesday. Ahmad Awad, one of Taha’s relatives, said that the family received a phone call on Wednesday from a social worker to inform them that Taha was injured in a traffic accident and had been transferred to Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital. Awad explained that Taha has been in a coma since Wednesday and signs of assault were obvious, especially on the head and face; note that he was in West Jerusalem on Wednesday and the doctors say that the injuries are a result of an assault and not a traffic accident.
