Palestinian accused of setting off car bomb in 'critical' condition

Jan. 14, 2016 6:38 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 14, 2016 6:38 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- The Palestinian Prisoner's Society said Thursday that a Palestinian woman who Israel accuses of attempting to set off a car bomb last year remained in "critical" condition in Israeli custody.

A lawyer for the society told Ma'an that 31-year-old Israa Jaabis was severely injured by the blaze that engulfed her car in front of a checkpoint into occupied East Jerusalem on Oct. 10.

Israeli police said at the time that Jaabis was attempting to detonate a car bomb, although witnesses said they believed the fire was caused by a technical fault.

After visiting Jaabis in Israel's HaSharon prison, her lawyer said she was bound to a wheelchair, had lost fingers on one of her hands, and suffered severe burns across her body.

Jaabis was treated at the Hadassah medical center for three months before she was transferred to HaSharon.

Her lawyer added that Jaabis suffered a difficult psychological state and was afraid her eight-year-old son would visit her and see her with the scars all over her body.

The lawyer added that Jaabis used to volunteer as a clown in the pediatric care unit of a hospital.
