Gaza, ALRAY - A monitoring human rights center condemned a wheelchair-bound prisoner being abused by a force of Nahshon escort unit in a prison transfer.

Palestine’s Prisoners for Studies Center said in a statement that wheel-chaired Mansour Moqedeh, 46, was thrust on the floor of the ‘Bosta’, an armored vehicle used for Palestinian prisoner transfers while he was being transported to an interrogation facility.

Moqedeh, from Salfiet district near Nablus, suffers from hemiplegia and resected small bowel, the center said adding that he complains of a tumor in his neck, which caused deterioration in his health as a result of the lack of medical prison care, the center explained.

Israeli authorities deliberately torture the prisoners aboard ‘Bosta’ car when they are destined for prison transfers, the center said.

Nahshon, a special unit of the occupation IPS, which stands for ‘Israel Prison Service’, that escorts and transfers prisoners.

According to the center, Amr Hussein, 61, from Hebron,  was subjected to a similar abuse a month ago while he was  his way to Ofer military court.

Mansour Moqedeh, sentenced to life, is one of the most threatened ill prisoners in Israeli jails.  He was arrested on 07/03/2002 after being shot in the belly and the back, which left him paralyzed.

Palestinian figures show that there are 1700 sick prisoners in Israeli jails out of some 5000 total, including 75 in serious health condition.
