Palestinian prisoner Abu Nehmeh is suffering from constant pain in his right hand due to the torture that he was subjected to during his interrogation, as he enters his 36th year in the Israeli occupation's prisons.
As he enters his 36th year spent in the Israeli occupation's prisons, 61-year-old Samir Abu Nehmeh is suffering from pains and illnesses due to the Israeli occupation's oppression and maltreatment.
The prisoner was arrested on October 20, 1986, in Salah ad-Din Street, occupied Jerusalem. He was later transferred to al-Masqubia, where he underwent a severely harsh investigation. The occupation accused him of being part of Fatah and blowing up bus number 18 in Yaffa in 1983, an operation that left 6 Israelis dead and many dozens wounded.
The occupation also accused Abu Nehmeh of providing arms to those who carried out the Morocco Gate operation that left one Israeli soldier dead and 69 wounded. An occupation court sentenced him to life in prison. He is currently serving his sentence in Rimon Prison.
Abu Nehmeh is one of the 25 Palestinian prisoners the occupation arrested before the signing of the Oslo Accords, the oldest of which are Karim Yunis and Maher Yunis. The occupation has previously refused to release the prisoners as part of a prisoner exchange deal - the latest of which was in 2014.
Prisoner Abu Nehmeh is suffering from constant pains in his right hand as a result of the torture and abuse he was subjected to during his interrogation. He is also suffering from sharp pains in the spinal nerves, in addition to his difficult health conditions.
