After being subject to beating and being critically injured…a decision to release the child Adham Obdeidat
December 10, 2015

The Magistrate judge decided on Thursday night to release the Jerusalemite injured child Adham Fayez Obeidat (14 years) from the village of Jabal Al-Mukabber. Amjad Abu Asab, head of Jerusalemites detainees and prisoners families committee, explained that Adham was arrested on 17/11/2015 by the Musta’ribeen unit (undercover police) while heading to school in the neighborhood of Ras Al-Amoud in Silwan. He was subject to severe beating which required him to be transferred to Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital (by the occupation forces) where he stayed for 12 days. Abu Asab added that Obeidat suffered a critical malfunction in his heart’s muscle due to severe beating and underwent a surgery where a device to organize his heart beats was implanted. He added that the child was then transferred to Al-Maskobyeh interrogation center where he stayed for nearly two weeks; the occupation prevented the child’s family from visiting their son under the pretext of being “detained”.
