Video: Abdul-Rahman al-Bahsh’s father speaks on the torture and abuse of prisoners and his son’s martyrdom

As the new year dawns on 2024, amid the ongoing Zionist genocide in occupied Palestine — and the heroic resistance confronting the occupation war machine — the Israeli occupation forces are continuing their war on the Palestinian detainees and the prisoners’ movement. On 1 January 2024, 23-year-old Palestinian detainee, Abdul-Rahman Bassem Al-Bahsh was assassinated by occupation forces inside the colonial Zionist Megiddo prison.

In this video, Al-Bahsh’s father speaks about his son, the torture and abuse of prisoners, and his son’s martyrdom. Excerpt: “Torture, beatings and aggression against the prisoners, and being stripped naked in the cold, and the humiliation, they are not allowed to sleep. They are not allowed decent food. These are the orders of the Zionist Ben Gvir. These are orders, you see, for the humiliation of the prisoners. But they, insha’Allah, they will not be humiliated, and they are born free, and insha’Allah, they will live free. And the martyr who ascends to martyrdom, to his Creator, is free. Alhamdulillah, God has raised my son’s head with martyrdom.
