A detained Palestinian teen, identified as Taiseer Hassan Tamimi, 18, from Deir Nitham village, northwest of Ramallah, in central West bank, was released, Monday, after he lost his sight while in prison, due to torture and after being denied specialized medicine or any treatment for preexisting health conditions.
Tamimi required specialized treatment, and ongoing consumption of medications at specific times, in addition to vitamins, but was denied access to them.
He was abducted by the army on April 7th, and suffers from liver and kidney diseases, but after he was denied access to specialized care and medications, his health condition witnessed a sharp deterioration, eventually resulting in him losing his eyesight.
After Tamimi became blind, Israel released him unconditionally, after already causing him to lose his eyesight.
“They did not give me any medication, and I lost my eyesight. I fell into a coma for three days, and I stayed a total of five days in Intensive Care, and when I regained consciousness, I could not see a thing, so I told my mother ‘am awake, but I cannot see anything,’ and that is when she told me that I became blind.”
The head of the Palestinian Detainees Committee in Bethlehem, Monqith Abu Atwan, told the Palestinian TV that, what Tamimi was subjected to, is a crime committed by Israel, especially the severe torture he suffered, including repeated strikes to his head.
“The Israeli Prison Authority is becoming even more aggressive against the detainees, especially detained children,” he said, “Almost instantly after Tamimi was taken prisoner, lawyers of the Detainees’ Committee and the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society, tried to deliver the medications to him, but the requests were denied by Israel, and he was not provided any treatment until he lost his eyesight.”
