Israel transfers Obeid to Jalama investigation center

[ 13/01/2011 - 10:08 AM ]

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)-- Israeli authorities transferred Tuesday Majd Mahir Obeid from Al-Khalil, in the south West Bank, to the Jalama investigation center after his medical recovery.
His four colleagues, Mohannad Nerokh, Wael al-Beitar, Wassam al-Qawasimi, and Ahmed al-Awiwi, remain in the Ramle hospital, Obeid's mother told the PIC on Wednesday.
Obeid was questioned about his affiliation with Hamas, shootings, and "fabricated, untrue stories", Obeid's mother said.
"The PA apparently gave Israel false information he never admitted to, leading to his arrest," she said.
Israeli forces arrested Obeid and his colleagues just five hours after their release by PA security agencies in the West Bank. The prisoners earlier embarked on a 45-day hunger strike demanding PA implementation of their supreme court-ordained release.
Obeid's mother said she held the PA security militias responsible for her son's arrest. She explained that his medical condition turned for the worse after the hunger strike. She believes Israel is exploiting his medical condition in order to draw out a confession.
