years, a Palestinian man who had been severely tortured by Israeli
soldiers and settlers during the Palestinian uprising or intifada

Nablus, suffered complete paralysis in 1991 as a result to the severe
beating and torture he underwent at the hands of Israeli soldiers.

grocery shop at the refugee camp and ordered him to clear the main street
of stone hurdles and burning tires placed by intifada activists.
After he removed the stones and the burning ties, however, the soldiers
reportedly took him forcibly to the nearby settlement of Alon Moreh where
they subjected him intensive beating and torture on his head and spinal
cord, until he lost consciousness.

Palestinians to Jewish settlements where they would let settler youngsters
beat and humiliate them in order to embolden them and make them unafraid

From the 1991 incident until his death yesterday, Saad was totally
paralysed and lost the ability to speak.
He was laid to rest at his refugee camp.
