An information blackout targeting not only the media and human rights and social justice organizations but also his own family is continuing over the condition of the Palestinian child detainee Abdullah Bassem Abu Bakr (17 years) from Ya’bud al-Qassam, occupied Jenin district.
The child’s father affirms that the information they’re provided with about his son’s condition is scarce. Since he was seized on Sunday at 1:00 am by Israeli occupation forces, the family has not received information about their son until Thursday, 29 July 2021 — 5 days after their son was admitted to the hospital.
When the news broke that Abdullah was being sent to the hospital after suffering grave injuries, and undergoing a 6 hour long operation, the occupation informed his relatives that he is still in critical condition after being shot by occupation forces with a bullet to his knee, leading to a serious injury, and a second bullet penetrating his lung, diaphragm, and liver. He is still in a very dangerous state, his life is at risk, and his family members and loved ones are being kept from his bedside.
The child’s father added that the hospital’s administration is hiding information about Abdullah’s health. It’s worth mentioning that he is now being held in the Hillel Yaffe Hospital under heavy security guard from the occupation’s police and intelligence forces.
Abdullah’s father demands: “We just want to check up on Abdullah’s health and see him” This is the bare minimum right for a severely injured child. One who is now surrounded by the same enemy forces who have injured him and deliberately tried to murder him.
In addition to his life-threatening physical condition, the Zionist enemy extended his detention in a court session held on 27 July 2021 for another eight days.
Abdullah, the revolutionary boy, who defends political prisoners around the world, including Georges Abdullah, who has been imprisoned for 37 years in French prisons, is lying today in a hospital bed while his family is sick with worry, trying in various ways to break through the arrogance and brutality of the Zionist occupation to visit and see their son.
Our and every free person’s responsibility today is demanding Abdullah’s freedom and protecting his life.

The international, Arab and Palestinian campaign to boycott Israel can play an important role at this critical time. Local boycott groups can protest and label Israeli produce and groceries. During Ramadan, Israeli dates from stolen Palestinian land are marketed around the world while Israel attempts to force Palestinians from Jerusalem, demolish homes, and imprisons thousands more. By participating in the boycott of Israel, you can directly help to throw a wrench in the economy of settler colonialism. Download our Boycott Flyer to distribute at supermarkets, stores and other venues in your community!
Demand Your Government Sanction Israel!
The racist, settler colonial state of Israel and its war crimes against the Palestinian people are enabled and backed extensively by the over $3.8 billion each year given to Israel by the United States — targeted directly to support the Israeli occupation military killing children, women, men and elders throughout occupied Palestine. From Canada to Australia to the European Union, Western governments and imperialist powers provide ongoing diplomatic, political and economic support to Israel as well as selling billions of dollars of weaponry to the settler-colonial state. Meanwhile, they also purchase billions of dollars in weaponry from the Israeli state. Governments in league with imperialist powers, such as in the Philippines, Brazil, India and elsewhere, also buy weapons and “security” services — all “battle-tested” on the Palestinian population. Call your representatives, MPs, political officials and demand your government sanction Israel now, cut off all aid, expel its ambassadors, and stop buying and selling weapons!
