on . Posted in slider

The Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees' Affairs warned of the aggravated health conditions of sick detainees at Al-Ramlah clinic, who are facing death at a daily basis.
The Commission stated that 15 sick detainees are held Al-Ramlah clinic, suffering from poor health and medical conditions. Most of them have paralysis and move using wheelchair, depending on their colleges to help them.
In addition, the Commission affirmed that they are suffering from deliberate medical negligence, where medical services and health care are not provided. They are only given painkillers instead of being treated in a proper way.
The Commission reviewed the aggravated health condition of the detainee Sami Abu Dyak, whose health is deteriorating due to the cancer in the intestines since three years.
The advocate of the commission Fawaz Shalloudi visited Abu Dyak and cited his message, in which he states "for the sake of God, work seriously to release me because I am about to die, and I want to spend the rest of my life in my father's lap".
Cases of sick detainees at the clinic of Al-Ramlah prison are the most difficult, where there are injured and disabled detainees and other detainees who have chronic diseases due to the policy of medical negligence.

Continuous medical violation against the detainee Rami Hijazi

on . Posted in slider

The Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees' Affairs expressed its deep concern about the increasing medical violations pursued by the administrations of Israeli prisons against sick and wounded detainees who are currently imprisoned in various Israeli jails, in which they are targeted with neglecting their health conditions.
The Commission monitored one of these cases at Ashkelon prison, the case of the 38-year-old detainee Rami Ibrahim Khalil Hijazi, from Tal Al-Hawa southwest of Gaza Strip. Hijazi suffers from a deflection in the spine many years ago, which causes severe pain and hindering his ability to move. The administration of prison gives him painkiller as an alternative of treatment.
The Commission stated that he gets transferred to the clinic of Beersheba prison from time to time to have Physiotherapy sessions, but sometimes Hijazi refuses to go to the clinic, just like his colleges in prison. This refusal is to avert the conditions of transfer by the Bosta car, where they are exposed to degrading treatment and spend long hours setting on iron chairs which worsens his health conditions.
 It is worth mentioning that the detainee Hijazi is detained since 2002 and sentenced to 20 years of imprisonment.

Abu Baker: the Israeli piracy of the money of the State of Palestine is a timed bomb

on . Posted in slider

The head of the Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees' Affairs, Major General Qadri Abu Baker, said that the Israeli crime represented in piracy a robbery of the money of the state of Palestine, which comes under the pretext of deducting the allocations of martyrs and detainees families, will be a real timed bomb.
His statements came in a meeting with delegation from Fatah movement\ Jalazon camp, where Abu Baker explained that the Palestinian leadership headed by President Mahmoud Abbas confirms that the salaries of martyrs and detainees families can't be affected, and that last penny in the budget of the authority will be given to those struggling people.
Major General Abu Baker called the International community to act immediately to put an end to this organized terrorism, resulting from the competition between Israeli politicians, to achieve success in the Knesset elections.
Major General Abu Baker pointed out that this piracy contradicts all international norms and conventions, and the international silence will lead to a confrontation with the occupation. He added that the Palestinian people and leadership will confront this racist extremism and that the occupation and its leadership will pay a high price for these actions.
It is worth mentioning that Jalazon camp northeast of Ramallah is one of the areas that are exposed to daily attacks by the occupation, and that 120 persons from this camp are behind the bars of Israeli jails, in addition to hundreds of released detainees and martyrs.

Detainees' institutions: occupation forces arrested (569) Palestinians in February 2019

on . Posted in slider

Ramallah: the occupation forces arrested (569) Palestinians from the occupied territories in February 2019, including (78) minors and (13) females.
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 in a fact sheet that the occupation authorities have arrested (229) citizens from Jerusalem, (73) from Ramllah and Al-Bireh, (60) from Hebron, (54) from Jenin, (44) from Bethlehem, (38) from Nablus, (15) from Tulkarem, (15) from Qalqilia, (9) from Tubas, (5) from Salfit, (10) from Jericho and (17) from Gaza Strip.
The most prominent policies practiced by occupation authorities against detainees in February:
Aggravated policies against detainees in Negev prison
Institutions observed a series of escalations by the occupation authorities and the Israeli prison Services that aimed to clampdown on the lives of Palestinian detainees in Israeli jails. Those escalations caused a state of tension that may increase and lead to unstable conditions in jails.
The wave of escalation started mid-February in Negev prison. At the beginning of the month, Negev prison administration informed the detainees about its intention to install jamming devices in section (4).
In February 15, the prison's administration emptied section (4) and installed the jammers. In February 18, the administration informed the detainees that it will operate the jammers at 10:00 am next morning. However, this notification came in spite of the negotiations with detainees that the jammers would not be operated. In response, the detainees informed the administration of the prison that they are willing to dissolve the factions and there will not be a representative of detainees to discuss matters with the administration, or take the responsibility of any action by the detainees. This action obliges the administration to deal with detainees individually, thereby keeping the prison administration in a permanent state of emergency.
This was the first step of protest which was followed by returning the meals by many sections, running at night in the prison's yard, and refusing to get inside their cells. However, the prison's administration responded by announcing the state of permanent emergency, doubling the numbers of forces and carrying out violent inspections in section (3&4).
The repression forces attacked detainees by beating them. In the same context, the detainees Ibrahim Natsheh and Fawzi Awwad burned their clothes, and then they were taken to solitary confinement, in addition to the detainee Saleh Ja'bari who also taken to solitary confinement after two days.
The escalations came after commencing the work of the committee formed by the Minister of Interior Security, Jel'ad Ardan, which aims to clampdown on the life conditions of detainees. The acts of the committee came in the context of the approaching Israeli elections, and in particular, the campaign by Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu who is using the Palestinian detainees as electoral propaganda.


Spoiled food served for detainees
Monitoring reports pointed out that the administration of prison is deliberately provide bad food in terms of quantity and quality for detainees in prisons and detention centers, where the food served does not conform to international laws and health standards, which force detainees to buy their stuff from the cantina on their own expenses.
Detainees' institutions revealed during last February that the suffering increases in detention centers, especially (Itzion, Huwara and Al- Jalama), where those detention centers do not contain a cantina, thus, detainees are forced to eat the bad meals of prison.

Major General Abu Baker sends a message of thanks to Intal Globalize Solidarity for its role in advocating the issue of Palestinian detainees

on . Posted in slider

Major General Qadri Abu Baker, the head of the Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees' Affairs, sent a letter of thanks on Sunday, 24 February 2019 to the Belgian Intal Globalize Solidarity praising its role in advocating the issue of Palestinian detainees in Israeli jails.
Abu Baker called on the international solidarity movements to make more efforts to break the international silence, and stated that solidarity events in various places help raising the awareness about the issue of Palestinian detainees in Israeli jails, empower their will and determination, and encourage them to achieve their goals under the pressure practiced against them by the Israeli prisons administration.
It is worth mentioning that the Belgian Intal Globalize Solidarity is an association subordinate to the Belgian Labor's Party (a left-wing party and one of the strongest advocates of the Palestinian issue), which organized an event in headquarter in Aalst on February 16, 2019 that included an explanation of the annual report issued by the Commission of Detainees Affairs. Many members of the Belgian Labor's party, representatives of the Belgian parliament, peace activists and lecturers have participated in the event.
The event ended with signing 15 letters which were sent to the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, calling for releasing all sick and old detainees in addition to female detainees, minor detainees and the long-term detainees who were imprisoned before the Oslo Accord, especially the detainee Kareem Younes being the oldest long-term detainee in the world.
 
 

Al-Shobaki turns 80 years inside the Israeli jails

on . Posted in slider

The Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees' Affairs stated on Tuesday that Major General Fuad Al-Shobaki the oldest Palestinian detainee in the Israeli jails has turned 80 years.
The Head of the Commission of Detainees' Affairs Qadri Abu Baker, the member of the Central Committee of Fatah Movement Muhammad Al-Madani, Dr. Muhammad Odeh, Reyad Qasrawi and Al-Shobaki's family has lighted a candle of freedom celebrating his 80th birthday. The cartoonist Ossama Nazzal made a portrait for him in this occasion.
Abu Baker stated: "Abu Hazem the oldest detainee in Israeli jails is sentenced to 20 years of imprisonment and he is detained since 2006. He suffers from many diseases and he was exposed to a deliberate medical negligence. The occupation bears full responsibility for his life, especially after refusing to release him, despite recognizing the deterioration of his health condition".
Abu Baker added "it is a shame on all the free people all over the world that Al-Shobaki enters his 80th year in the Israeli jails, while they just watch without taking a serious action towards the violations that he and all detainees are exposed to".
The Commission pointed out that the Military Court of Ofer Prison decided on September 2015 to mitigate his sentence by deducting three years of the sentence to be 17 years of imprisonment. Another session has been held on May 2018 to hear the final sentence, but it was postponed.   

A minor detainee in Ofer prison narrates the terrifying moments of his arrest when attacked with dogs

on . Posted in slider

The advocate of the Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees' Affairs, Mo'taz Shqiarat, cited on Tuesday the story of the minor detainee Mohammad Abdullah Hammad,16, from Qalandia camp, in which he was exposed to humiliation and extensive beating during his arrest in 16/1/2019 from his house.
Hammad who still detained at Ofer prison stated that "a number of Israeli soldiers besieged my house in the camp, where many soldiers broke into the house accompanied by horrific dogs. The two dogs attacked me, while the soldiers were holding my family and threatening them with weapons".
He added: "then they handcuffed me, blindfolded my eyes and took me to a settlement called "Kochav Ya'akov". At that time, the soldiers kept beating, cursing and deliberately forcing me to fall down".
"After arriving to the settlement, they transferred me by a military vehicle to Atarot Interrogation Cetner and they forced me to confess guilt with the charge of throwing stones on soldiers at Qalandia military checkpoint, then they transferred me to Ofer prison".
The Commission pointed out that the Israeli occupation with all its authorities are deliberately causing harm, humiliation and abuse against Palestinian detainees, especially children during detention, interrogation and trials.
This is a clear and systematic plan to destroy the Palestinian childhood and its future, where 99% of those who got arrested are exposed to one or more kind of torture, abuse, and humiliation. 

Outrage and tension in Megiddo prison after breaking in the prison and abducting the representative of detainees from his cell

on . Posted in slider

A state of tension and outrage prevailed in all sections of Megiddo prison after the abduction of Rabee' Abu Al-lail, the representative of detainees, from his cell without any justifications and transferring him to another section in preparation for transferring him to Nafaha Prison according to the Prison Administration, the Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees' Affairs stated on Sunday.
The Commission revealed that the detainees got astonished due to the break in of section 6 at 5:00 am by the Alyamaz, Mitsada and Droor forces, who forcibly took Abu Al-lail out of his cell without allowing him to change his clothes or take anything of his belongings. This act was followed by a break in and a closure to all sections of the prison.
The Commission clarified that detainees responded to this violent attack by knocking on the doors and exclaiming "God is great". In addition, they returned their meals and informed the administration of the prison that if the detainee Abu Elil was not returned to prison, there would be an escalation, noting that the administration has informed detainees at all sections that the aim of this attack is to transfer Abu Al-lail.
The Commission warned of the escalation of attacks against detainees in all prisons, and called the International Community to put an end to the Israeli hatred against detainees, which is increasing with the oncoming Israeli elections. However, detainees are considered a good material for the propaganda of candidates.
