Tortured to DEATH in Egypt



In the early hours of Wednesday October 14, the body of Yousef Hamdan Abu Zuhri, brother of a Hamas spokesman, Dr. Sami Abu Zuhri was handed down to the Palestinian side in Gaza. Yousef died in Burj al Arab prison in Alexandria, Egypt .
The pictures obtained by Palestine Now show signs of brutal and horrible torture all over his body.
According to Palestinian medical sources at Abu Yousef Al Najjar Hospital in Rafah, the body of martyr Abu Zuhri was handed over without Internal viscera and most of his tongue was amputated.
These are some photos obtained by Palestine Now for the body of the martyr, the rest of the pictures were too horrific to be published.

We also knew that Yousef died 4 days before the announcement of his death. He was subjected to very high electric shocks for long periods and as a result of torture he lost his sight more than a month before his death.


Please, send to your groups in Europe and America and ask them to send to the Egyptian embassies asking for investigation and sending those who are responsible to justice and the most important thing is to ask the Egyptian government to free the rest of Palestinians detained in Egyptian prisons.

The Egyptian Interior ministry claimed that Yousef Hamdan Abu Zuhri died of ‘Natural Causes’! 


Please, put presure on the Egyptian government to free the rest of the prisoners before they face the same destiny as poor Yousef, God rest his soul.

Alaa and Abdel-Rahman are detained in state security jails since August – September 2008 and no one knows their whereabouts and we are very much concerned about their lives which probably are in great danger.

Thank you very much,

On Behalf of the Net Activists,

Iman Badawi Cairo – Egypt 

Dear Iman Badwi ,         


Your communication  forwarded below, exposes the covert collaboration of the Egyptian government against the Palestinian people and cause and deserves the widest condemnation in the Arab world  and in all continents .Meetings should be held in every  country in particular in Egypt and all over the Arab world ,  to expose the murder and incarcerations in Egyptian jails .Newspapers and the TV and every alternative media outlet should carry reports . With every Egyptian Ambassador and Permanent Representative informed officially by Hamas among other organizations of the position including the Egyptian head of state and Minitry of Interior .


As is now known throughout the world that Egypt had equally blockaded the people of Gaza compounding the miseries of the Palestinian people by refusing to open its border posts .Is this Islamic behaviour, this question needs to be raised everywhere including in Mosques all over the Arab world and among neighbouring countries.


It is time that the entire issue is taken to the Human Rights Council and even reported to the General Assembly, as this is not an issue of an individual, your report indicates that collectively a political group is being targeted for its refusal to abandon the Palestinian people .  Evidence points to collaboration.
