Detainee Zakaria Zubaidi faces continuous penalties and difficult conditions in Ashkelon prison

May 6, 2024

The Commission of Detainees’ Affairs stated in a report issued today, according to advocate’s visit, that the isolated detainee Zakaria Zubaidi, from Jenin, is suffering from difficult detention conditions.

The Commission emphasized that Zubaidi, currently held in the cells of Ashkelon prison since three months, is subject to daily inspections by special units subordinate to the IPS, where he suffers from lack of clothes and only has the clothes he wears, and served with poor quality and quantity of food.

It is expected to transfer him next week from the isolation of Ashkelon prison to another isolation, as he is being exposed to the policy of retaliatory transfer every three months.

The Commission said that the occupation and the IPS should hold responsibility for the life of Zubaidi, against whom an extremist policy is practiced, which violates all international agreements and covenants.

The occupation force arrested Zubaidi in 2019, as he was able to escape from Jelboa prison by digging a tunnel, with five of his colleagues.

The occupation forces arrested them again and sentenced them to additional 5 years, and a fine of 5000 NIS, in addition to practicing deliberate torture against them, solitary confinement, medical ignorance and physical and psychological abuse.
