PPS: Israeli occupation released prisoner Abayat in very poor and shocking health condition

OCCUPIED PALESTINE, July 10 (YPA) – The Israeli occupation forces released this evening, Tuesday, the Palestinian prisoner Ma’zuz Abayat (37 years old) from Bethlehem, in the southern West Bank, after he had spent 9 months in administrative detention

Palestinian prisoner Ma’zuz Abayat emerged in harsh and shocking health condition after serving months in Israeli detention, according to the Palestine Prisoner’s Society (PPS).

PPS said in a press statement that Israeli occupation authorities released 37-year-old Abayat, a resident of Bethlehem, from the an-Naqab desert prison in very poor and shocking health condition after serving nine months under administrative detention.

It added that during his term of imprisonment since October 2023, Abayat was subject to severe beating, particularly to the feet, and as well as to a series of torture, starvation and medical crimes, which manifested and evidenced in his appearance upon his release. Such torture, starvation and crimes have been the central reasons for the death of Palestinian prisoners after October 7.

The first words Abayat uttered after his release was that he was “subjected to attempted murder” more than once, according to the PPS.
