The News Line: News ISRAELI SOLDIERS BEAT BLIND MAN
Israeli soldiers attacking a group of Palestinians
ISRAELI soldiers have violently beaten up a blind and paralysed Palestinian man in front of his wife and children for no apparent reason in the West Bank town of Dawha, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports.


Munzer Mizhar, a 47-year-old retired medical technician, was beaten with brass knuckles by Israeli forces who had stormed his house, early in the morning on February 20, the paper reported.

The Israeli forces allegedly broke the door and stormed the house after failing to apprehend a targeted individual living a floor above the Mizhar family. The family explained that the beating lasted about five minutes, despite desperate attempts to notify the soldiers of Mizhar’s dire health situation.

The soldiers refused to give any explanation for the ordeal and eventually left the house after forcing the family’s four sons to get on their knees with faces pressed to the floor. Mizhar previously had his toes amputated and had lost his eyesight due to severe diabetes. He can barely move and needs dialysis treatment three times a week due to kidney failure.

Asked about probable motives for the attack by Haaretz, the victim’s sister, Maysoun said, ‘They beat us all. The occupation beats us all. We are under occupation.’
