IMEMC News: Israeli soldiers kidnapped former political prisoner, Mo’taz Obeido, 32, from
Hebron city, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank. Obeido suffered a disability
after being shot by the army in November of 2011.

Back in 2011 Obeido was shot by the soldiers leading to paralysis in his left leg, in addition
to suffering extensive damage to his stomach and intestines after the soldiers fired an
international-banned dumdum bullet at him from a distance that does not exceed 5 meters.

His father said that a large military force surrounded his son’s store in Wad Al-Harya area, in
Hebron, and kidnapped him after forcing him to remove his clothes.

He added that soldiers also fired several rounds of live ammunition during the attack, and
that several blood stains were found on the ground after the soldiers left the area, an issue that
raises fears among the family that Obeido might have been injured again.

The Hebron office of the Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) held Israel fully responsible for
the life of Obeido.

Amjad An-Najjar, head of the Hebron branch of the PPS, said that Obeido requires ongoing
medical attention and follow-up due to his previous injuries, and that he is a married father
of three daughters, and was repeatedly kidnapped and imprisoned by Israel, including being
imprisoned for two years without charges.
