Detainee's mother appeals to save son's sight

TULKAREM (Ma'an) -- The mother of a Palestinian detained in Israel appealed Monday to human rights organizations to help her son, who is at risk of losing his sight.

Iyad Nasser lost one of his eyes after being tortured by prison guards at Israel's Ashkelon detention center, his mother said.

He was at risk of losing his other eye, which required urgent medical attention, and also had a pancreatic disorder, she added.

Israeli forces detained Nasser in 2001 and sentenced him to 30 years in prison.

Palestinian Authority Detainees' Minister Issa Qaraqe visited Nasser's parents and promised to follow up on his case.
