RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Three Palestinians who were detained during Israel's ground offensive in the Gaza Strip were assaulted, injured, and denied medical treatment, a lawyer told Ma'an on Wednesday.
Youssef al-Nasasrah, a lawyer with the Palestinian Prisoners' Society, said that Ahmad Taymur Abu Rida was detained from his home in Khan Younis and "brutally beaten" by Israeli soldiers.
Khalid Kamel Ibrahim al-Najjar from Khuza, a neighborhood of Khan Younis, was injured in an Israeli airstrike and arrested while still bleeding from his injuries.
He was not given medical treatment following his arrest.
Momen Khalid al-Najjar, also from Khuza, was assaulted while being detained.
Al-Nasasrah visited the detainees in Israel's Ashkelon prison, where rights groups say 26 Palestinians are being held.
Over 250 Palestinians were detained
during Israel's ground operation and uncertainty remains over the exact number still being held in Israeli prisons.
