An Israeli prison guard deployed to watch a hospitalized Palestinian
prisoner reportedly fired tear gas into the intensive care unit room
where the man was convalescing after treatment for injuries sustained
The Hebrew newspaper /Maariv/ reported
<https://www.maariv.co.il/news/military/Article-725616> that an Israel
Prison Service guard “accidentally” emitted tear gas in Samer Arbeed’s
room at the Hadassah hospital in Jerusalem earlier this month, requiring
doctors to intervene.
/Maariv/ said the incident was never reported to the prison service.
Arbeed was hospitalized
on 27 September following his interrogation by Israel’s domestic
intelligence agency, the Shin Bet
But being hospitalized has not stopped his ordeal and Israeli prison
authorities have continued to question
Arbeed even while in the ICU.

among other serious injuries

United Nations rights experts are calling
on Israel to investigate claims of torture of Arbeed.
Addameer’s Mahmoud Hassan, Arbeed’s lawyer, was not informed of the tear

that deterioration in Arbeed’s pulmonary system was due to a
“contamination,” Addameer stated

on 22 October after he was gassed. Hassan was barred from attending that
session as well.

Arbeed of involvement in the killing
of Israeli teen Rina Shnerb
Shnerb was killed by what the Israeli military said was an improvised
explosive device near the Dolev settlement in the West Bank on 23 August
that also injured her father and brother.
Israel has re-arrested
leftist Palestinian lawmaker Khalida Jarrar

Ramallah in the early hours of Thursday morning by what Israeli media
reports said were security forces belonging to the Shin Bet.
My mom, Khalida Jarrar, was arrested from our house in Ramallah
moments ago. Isreali occupation forces raided our home with over 70
soldiers and around 12 military vehicles. Mom and sister were asleep
when they approached. #freekhalidajarrar
