The aggressive attack against detainees during arrest is continuous

on . Posted in slider

The Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees' Affairs expresses its deep concern of the continuous aggressive attack practiced by Israeli authorities against Palestinian detainees, especially children, where detainees are deliberately taken from their houses to interrogation centers. They are exposed to various forms of physical and psychological torture to confess guilt under pressure. 
In this context, the commission reviewed many testimonies of minor detainees in various jails, in which they narrate the conditions of their detention and interrogation.
A case in point is the detainee, Malek Qawasmi, (15 years old) from Hebron. He was arrested after getting attacked in the street by Israeli soldiers, who brutally hit him on the head and tried to suffocate him, and then he got moved to Ofer prison for interrogation.
In the same context, the Israeli forces tortured the detainee Ziyad Mar'e (25 years old) from Tulkarem. He is currently jailed at Jalbao prison, where detectives tried to harm him during the interrogation by pressing on his injured hand and threatening him if he does not confess guilt.
However, the detainees Fares Khaseeb (36 years old) from Tulkarem, Muhammad Daraghmeh (19 years old) from Tubas, Ahmad Hamzawi (18 years old) from Nablus and Ahman Tantawi from Nablus have complained on the bad conditions of detention at Ashkelon prison, Jalamah prison and Huwara military camp. Cells are described as graves, food is very bad and they cannot sleep or take a rest due to the disturbing sounds.
