Israeli soldiers broke, Tuesday, into the Eshil Israeli detention facility, in Be’er As-Sabe’ (Bir Shiva), wounding at least forty detainees, after forcing approximately 200 detainees under the sun for several hours.
The soldiers attacked, kicked and clubbed the detainees, and searched their rooms and beds while sabotaging their property; the soldiers also used dogs while searching the rooms and property of the detainees.
The Prison Authority also forced 16 detainees into solitary confinement, confiscated several fans and TV sets, and denied the detainees access to the prison canteen.
The detainees told the Prison Administration that they will refuse to eat until it returns the confiscated equipment and property.
The Weed Society for Detainees and Ex-Detainees, slammed the Israeli attack against the detainees, and stated that using weapons and excessive force in attacking the detainees, is a direct violation of international law and all related human rights agreements, including the Fourth Geneva Convention.
The Society said that these attacks are systematic, frequent and are meant to target the well-being and the lives of the detainees.
