Double occupation of the Palestinians: Palestinian Authority torturing its own people
Similar to Iraq's post-war law enforcers, security forces of the traitorous Palestinian Authority are trained and financed by the United States and the E.U. It shouldn't be hard to imagine their level of brutality.
So far we have been used to stories of Palestinians tortured in Israeli prisons; and now the harrowing story of torture and abuse of 28-year-old Palestinian man, Osamah Nayef al-Shawamreh, a hardworking employee at a solar power company in Hebron, by the security forces of the Palestinian Authority. Shawamreh was arrested on February 1 this year by the Palestinian Investigation Unit of Hebron over false allegations of hacking a Facebook account. The physical and verbal abuse began immediately after arrest in the detention unit.
His neck was viciously squeezed to make him feel he was going to be strangled. When he asked for water, his interrogators yelled telling him that he was going to die inside the cell. Shawamreh was then coerced to sign some documents .. he had no idea what they were. The military doctor who collaborated with the interrogators offered no treatment even though he knew the detainee had sustained serious injuries.
A week later on February 7, Palestinian human rights group, Al-Haqq, obtained a medical report and shifted Shawamreh to the emergency room of a hospital in Ramallah. By now Shawamreh's condition was precarious. He was suffering from severe neck and shoulder pain, internal bleeding, bruises, burns, at least two fractured ribs and severe post-traumatic stress. He lost sensory feelings in one of his hands and both his legs as a result of savage beatings repeatedly. Osamah al-Shawamreh is also urgently in need of psychiatric care.
The physical and mental torture he endured at the hands of West Bank's security forces with the collaboration of the Palestinian military doctor will never allow this young man to feel normal again.
While the world may keep waiting for changes through "peace negotiations," the only change that has so far materialized is that Israeli prisons are no longer the only venues where Palestinians are tortured. Prisons run by the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank are just as deadly for the people of occupied Palestine who are now under a barbarous and merciless double occupation - Zionists and the PA together.
Osamah's case is just one out of many. The Palestinian Authority (the traitor within) is reportedly even more secretive than the Zionist butchers to conceal its shameful collaboration with the occupiers and their Western allies.
At the link below, please take the time to watch the 12-minute video of al-Shawamreh in his own words and read the story of intense abuse endured by him at the hands of his own people to appease the occupying enemies.
