The Commission of Detainees' Affairs condemns the continuous targeting of citizens from Jerusalem and the escalated attack against them

on . Posted in slider

The Commission of Detainees' Affairs condemned the ferocious attack against citizens of Jerusalem which increased lately day by day, in an attempt to force residents to leave the city.

Israeli occupation authorities deliberately wage a war against the people of the holy city at all levels, where detainees are targeted in issuing unjust sentences against them and imposing high fines.

A case in point is Sameeha Judeh from Jerusalem who was sentenced to 180 hours of public service, a fine of NIS 1500 and a suspended sentence of two months of imprisonment.

It is worth mentioning that Jude suffers from many health problems such as cancer, osteoporosis and bone cartilage.

The commission also stated that the occupation authorities are increasing the punitive measures against people of Jerusalem on a daily basis, such as daily arrests, withdrawing IDs, house demolishing and retaining martyrs' bodies.

The commission pointed out that the attack practiced by the Israeli government against the people of Jerusalem is a systematic collective punishment to break their will and steadfastness.

The head of the Commission of Detainees' Affairs, Abu Baker, condemned the Israeli degradation in taking revenge of Palestinian detainees and harming them to satisfy the desires of racists in military and political organizations of the occupation.

Abu Baker warned of keeping this approach in dealing with detainees, and stated that this may lead to an unprecedented clash with the Captive Movement inside Israeli prisons
Abu Baker called on the international community and its organizations to take serious and practical steps to put an end to this attack against detainees, and force Israel to abide by the international charters and agreements and the principles of international law. 
Abu Baker's statements came during the visit of released detainees from Bethlehem, including Yaser Dar'way who spent 13 years in jails, Jamal Hamamreh and Usama Taqatqa.

"I am the sick detainee Sami Abu Dyak
I appeal every conscientious to work for releasing me from the Israeli jails
I suffer from cancer, and I have a few days to live according to Israeli medical reports
I want to spend these days and die in my mother's lap, not in the cemetery of numbers
This appeal was a joint appeal with my companion of suffering in jail, the sick detainee Bassam Sayeh, before one day of his martyrdom
I will be with my brother Bassam Sayeh in the cemetery of numbers if you don’t respond to my appeal
I call on you from the so-called Al-Ramlah Hospital to let me spend my last hours and days with my mother, I don’t want to die handcuffed in a mean cell by a jailor who prefer death to us"

on . Posted in slider

The Commission of Detainees' Affairs reviewed in a report issued today the details of the brutal break in implemented at Jelboa prison last week.

The commission stated that detainees announced the state of maximum alert after this attack. In response, the administration of prison imposed a series of punitive measures against detainees, where they closed many rooms and confiscated all electric devices.
The commission also confirmed that the tension prevails in prison and detainees complain about the destruction caused by the break in, and that the administration insists on keeping the jamming devices installed in prisons.

The commission pointed out that these incidents came as part of the clear systematic policy practiced by the administration of prison to disturb detainees and impose punishments against them. This is considered a flagrant violation of all international laws and standards, which expose the arbitrary practices against Palestinian detainees.

More than 200 detainees at Remon prison entered a hunger strike for one day, demanding to remove the jamming devices. After a discussion between the administration and detainees' representatives, an agreement concluded to suspend the strike in return of responding to detainees' demands.

Ramallah: the occupation forces arrested 470 Palestinian citizens last August, including 50 minors and 11 women

on . Posted in slider

Detainees' institutions and Human Rights Organizations (the Commission of Detainees and Ex-detainees' Affairs, the Palestinian Society Prisoner's Club, Al Dameer Association for Human Rights) pointed out that the occupation authorities arrested 162 citizens from Jerusalem, 82 from Ramallah, 50 from Hebron, 44 from Jenin, 30 from Bethlehem, 38 from Nablus, 13 from Tulkarem, 24 from Qalqilia, 6 from Tubas, 8 from Jericho and 7 from Gaza Strip.
The total number of detainees in Israeli jails reached up to 5700, including 38 women, 220 minors, 500 administrative detainees, while 76 new administrative detention sentences have been issued and renewed.
Women detainees… violations and increased suffering
Detainees' institutions pointed out that women detainees held in Israeli jails are exposed to many violations and breaches in treatment, going through detention, being held in interrogation centers, transportation, neglecting their health conditions, imposing high fines against them and holding them in bad detention conditions in a way that violate all international agreements and covenants.
The number of women detainees in Israeli jails reached to 38, they are held in Damoun prison in a section that contains 13 rooms, and each room accommodates from 4 to 8 detainees.
Detainees' institutions acknowledge that Damoun prison, which was a stable before, lacks the minimum elements of human life. Its ground is concrete, which is very cold in winter and very hot in summer. Most of rooms are poorly ventilated, full of insects and there are no chairs in the rooms and no blankets to sit down.
Women detainees suffer from procrastinating medical checkups which lead to a deterioration in their health conditions. A case in point is the wounded detainee Israa' Ja'abees from Jerusalem. Moreover, women detainees are prevented from attaining books and deprived of family visits.
Children confronting summon and suppression
Occupation authorities escalated in summoning minors through their parents to interrogate them since June 2019, in an attempt to target children to have information and spoil the relationship between them and their families.
At the beginning of August, occupation authorities summoned the family of the child Malak Sider, 8 years old from Hebron. In addition, they summoned many families of children from Jerusalem, including a child less than 5 years old.
In the context of violating the rights of the child, Palestinian children detainees in Megiddo and Ofer prisons are exposed to violent suppression. In August 14, 2019   Israeli forces broke in two sections of Ofer prison, in which minor detainees are held in. They handcuffed minors and isolated some of them after attacking them with beating and using pepper gas. They also broke in the section of minors in Megiddo prison which includes 63 minors after a clash between a child and a jailor. The administration of prison implemented many punitive measures, especially against the section of minors.
However, detainees' institutions affirm that the administration of prisons increased the violations through ferocious means against minors in 2019, without taking into consideration their privacy or special needs. These acts are considered a flagrant violation of international laws and conventions concerned with child protection.

The battle of administrative detention is constant… 8 detainees entered a hunger strike in August
 8 detainees entered a hunger strike since August protesting against their administrative detention, where 500 detainees are held in Israeli prisons without any legal justification.
Detainees who entered the strike are Ahmad Ghannam, who conducted a strike for 58 days, Huthaifa Halabia since 67 days, Sultan Khlouf since 54 days, Ismail Ali from since days, Tareq Qa'dan since 41 days, Nasser Jada' since 34 days, Thaer Hamdan since 29 days, in addition to Fadi Hroub who ended his strike in September 5, 2019 after 23 days.

Huthaifa Halabia ended his strike due to his health condition and Ghannam is in a real danger
The detainee Huthaifa Halabia, from Abu Dees village, ended his hunger strike after 67 days. He entered a stage of real danger on his health, and he got moved to Kaplan Hospital due to his critical situation, which forced him to suspend his hunger strike to maintain his life.
Ahmad Ghannam became the oldest detainee in the strike with 58 days. It is worthy to mention that his health condition is in a continuous deterioration, especially that he had a cancer in the blood and had a surgery in 2000, but he still suffers from problems in the liver and blood platelets.
Many detainees ended their hunger strike after concluding an agreement that determining a specific period of their detention. A case in point is the detainee Mohammad Abu Aker who entered a strike for 36 days to determine his detention of four months, in addition to the detainee Mustafa Hasanat who entered a strike for 36 days to specify his period of detention to 6 months. Another case in point is the detainee Wajdi Awawdeh who entered a strike for 27 days in order to set him free in February 2020, the detainee Hmmam Abu Rahmah who entered a strike for 11 days, and the detainee Bassam Abu Aker who entered a strike for 5 days.
The administration of prisons still following systematic procedures against detainees on hunger strike to force them suspend their strike, represented in isolating them in cells, depriving them of family visits and frequent transportation from one prison to another.
In addition, jailors deliberately provoke detainees on hunger strike by eating in front of them and conduct daily inspections to practice pressure against them.
