*The Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees’ Affairs gives a detailed account of abuse against detainee Bsaisi*

May 23, 2024

The Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees’ Affairs gave a detailed account in a report issued today of abuse and intense beat practiced against detainee Zaid Bsaisi, 47, from Toulkarem , in Jelboa prison.

The Commission stated that the detainee was transferred to Shatta prison and exposed to intense beat in 4/5/2024. A heavily armed forces accompanied by police dogs were awaiting him when he arrived at prison, as they attacked him and other detainees which causes bruises on his body.
He was sent back to prison in 30/4, and he is still held there.

In the same context, detainees in Jelboa prison are experiencing difficult and exceptional health conditions, as they are exposed to systemic physical and psychological torture. They are isolated from the outside world, deprived of using the canteen and prevented from communicating their relatives. All electrical supplies have been confiscated from their rooms.

The commission confirmed that what happened with the detainee Bsaisi happens to all detainees in all prisons, where there are several horrific measures that the prison’s administration is still pursuing, such as policies of torture and starvation.

The commission emphasized that the current policies, with all brutality and crimes committed against detainees, are systematic historical policies practiced by the occupation over decades. However, the only variable is in their intensity which increased after October 7, since the beginning of war on Gaza Strip.
