'Israeli soldiers have violently beaten up a blind and paralyzed Palestinian man in front of his wife and children with no apparent reason in the West Bank town of Dawha, Haaretz reports.
Munzer Mizhar, a 47-year-old retired medical technician, was beaten with what he felt were brass knuckles by Israeli forces who had stormed his house, early in the morning on February 20, the paper reported.
The Israeli forces allegedly broke the door and stormed the house after failing to apprehend a targeted individual living a floor above the Mizhar family.
The family explained that the beating lasted about five minutes, despite desperate attempts to notify the soldiers of Mizhar's dire health situation.
The soldiers refused to give any explanation for the ordeal and eventually left the house after forcing the family's four sons to get on their knees with faces pressed to the floor.
The victim, who suffered severe bleeding in the face along with wounds in both shoulders and hands, was taken to hospital for treatment. Mizhar currently has pains in his jaw and has difficulty eating food, further complicating his health condition.
Mizhar previously had his toes amputated and had lost his eyesight due to severe diabetes. He can barely move and needs dialysis treatment three times a week due to kidney failure.
The attack also severely traumatized Mizhar's family, especially his wife, Iman, who was at his side at the time of the assault.'
