The Israeli occupation forces on Tuesday evening attacked a Palestinian protest near Hadassah Hospital in Occupied Jerusalem where the Palestinian detainee Samer al-Arabeed, who is currently in a coma after being beaten by Israeli interrogators, is held.
The Israeli forces violently assaulted the Palestinian protesters and arrested two of them.
Dozens of Palestinian activists staged a sit-in in Jerusalem in solidarity with al-Arabeed and in protest at the aggressive policies pursued against Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.
The activists stressed that al-Arabeed needs urgent and real medical treatment, pointing out that the Israel Prison Service is not offering him the medical care his condition requires.
They also demanded that all Israeli interrogators who assaulted him be tried.
