Bethlehem/PNN/

Zakaria Zubeidi, one of the four Palestinian freedom fighters who were 
captured yesterday by the Israeli occupation forces after their 
jailbreak from Gilboa Prison last week, was moved to the hospital today 
due to the acute beating he was subjected  to during his arrest.

Hasan Abed Rabbo, spokesperson for the Palestinian Detainees Affairs 
Commission, said in a press release that Zubeidi, 46, sustained extreme 
beating in the left-right of his face, and after a deterioration in his 
case, he was taken today to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa for medical 
treatment.

He said none of the attorneys of the Commission has been able to visit 
any of the four prisoners to review their health conditions, and that 
the only information available so far only come through the Israeli 
Security Agency (Shin Bet).

Yesterday, legal and human rights organizations called on the 
International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to intervene and 
coordinate an immediate visit to the four Palestinian prisoners who were 
captured by Israel after their jailbreak last week from Gilboa Israeli jail.

For its part, the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) held the Israeli 
authorities fully responsible for any harm that may befall the four 
Palestinian freedom fighters who were re-arrested after escaping from 
Gilboa prison on Monday.

PPS in a statement said that concerns are mounting over the fate of the 
four prisoners after they were re-arrested and subjected to severe 
beatings; adding that the transfer of Zakaria Zubeidi to the hospital is 
an indication of what they have been subjected to, stressing that the 
Israeli authorities do not rush to transfer prisoners to civilian 
hospitals unless they were subjected to significant harm.

PPS reiterated its call to the International Committee of the Red Cross 
(ICRC) to pay an immediate visit to the prisoners to ensure that their 
health is not at risk.

The prisoners were identified as Zakaria Zubeidi, 46, from Jenin refugee 
camp, Mohammad Arda, 39, from Arraba town near Jenin, Mahmoud Arda, 46, 
also from Arraba town, and Yacoub Qadri, 49, from Bier al-Basha, near Jenin.
