Paramedics are not allowed to save Palestinians injured during clashes in Al-Bireh city - Israeli soldiers are apparently taught the "bleed to death" policy against Palestinians in all occurrences.

Nabil Mdeires Mohammed Abu Okal
  • Man of hard soul
  • Jabalya refugee camp


The mujahid Nabil Mdeires Mohammed Abu Okal was born on February 17th, 1973 in the Jabalya refugee camp in northern Gaza Strip. Zionist forces exiled him from his hometown,  which was occupied by the Zionist occupation forces in the Nakba in 1948.

He grew up between his patient family in the mujahideen camp "Jabalya", where he received Islamic education at the hands of his father who taught him the ethics of Islam, and where he suck dignity, honor and courage from his mother's milk.

Nabil had his primary and preparatory education in the schools of the refugee relief agency in the camp, then moved to study secondary education in governmental schools, but the Zionist forces injured him in his leg, Zionist forces detained him, so he didn’t finish high school. But he managed to finish his high school inside the Zionist jails but the Zionist authorities prevented him to continue his study in the university.

His father used to depend on him in performing each of his affairs, where he was always helping his father in many of his concerns, and he was very sympathetic to his parents and compassion to them. Not only his parents who enjoyed his kindness, but all of his family members whom he was visiting and sharing all events.

Hamas member:

Nabil had joined the Islamic Resistance Movement - Hamas - since childhood, he was committed to the Koran teaching classes in a mosque near his house, and he was also a member of the Jerusalem Scout group, where he was involved in many of the events.

Nabil participated in all activities of Hamas movement like marches, festivals and summer camps; and had a major role in the mosque where many young people entered the mosque on his hands.


The capture of the hero was on 1/6/2000, during his travel to abroad. He was directing to Jordan, after he rid the plane, the Zionist forces invaded it and injured him and ten of the plane travelers. After 20 days, his family knew that he is detained in Askalan jail.

Trial ... The accusations against the prisoner:

Nabil was provided to the Zionist illegal Court, where he faced a single charge, namely:

Travel abroad to receive medical treatment for his leg

The court ruled Nabil with imprisonment for (27 years).

The suffering of the prisoner

As all Palestinian prisoners' families, Nabil's family suffers from the visit. They face the worst treatment that the Zionist occupation practices all kinds of humiliation against them. Most of the time, the Zionist occupation prevent them from the visit after a long trip of suffering.

The visit to take place indirectly, as the dialogue and the meeting is through (telephone) connected between the prisoner and his family. The prisoner sit in a room of glass, and the duration of the visit is 45 minutes. The Zionist soldiers deliberately used to "noise" on the phone connected between the prisoner and his family.

Hope of meeting ..

Nabil's family are counting the seconds, minutes, and nights waiting for the return of Nabil impatiently, Nabil has left - as they say - a huge vacuum behind.
