*Arbitrary measures and vindictive sanctions practiced by the administration of Megiddo Prison against detainees*

April 23, 2024

The Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs confirmed that the Israeli occupation state breached international laws and agreements in dealing with Palestinian detainees, especially the Third and Fourth Geneva Conventions, which include obvious articles concerning detainees of a national liberation movements and the mechanisms of treating them in terms of their rights related to health and living conditions.

The Commission confirmed in a statement issued today that the series of vindictive and abusive measures practiced against detainees after October 7 are considered awful war crimes, and that the perpetrators should be held responsible. These crimes were based on the denial of the Palestinian detainee’s humanity and unleashed the occupation system to launch its brutality, which appeared on the bodies of liberated detainees, who got exhausted by starvation, beating, cold weather and deprivation.

In a related context, the commission pointed out, based on the advocate’s visit to Megiddo Prison, that detainees have talked about the difficulty of their daily life since launching the war on Gaza, as detention conditions became intolerable at all levels, for instance:

. All rooms are overcrowded, and each room has 6 beds and accommodates 14 detainees

. Deliberate medical neglect, and there are many detainees with chronic diseases who are not given medication.

. Detainees are only allowed to own the clothes they wear; they have to wash them and wait for them to dry.

. The food is bad in both quantity and quality, as they have nothing else to eat inside the room, and the amount of food given to the detainees in the rooms is distributed with a spoon

. Detainees complain of the severe cold in the prison, especially since the windows have been removed.

. Detainees are deprived of using books, paper, and pens, and any detainee who asks for paper and a pen is subjected to beating.

The commission call on the International Community and its human rights organizations to intervene immediately and break their silence to save Palestinian detainees and to ensure that this failure will not continue.
