AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Director of  the Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) in the district of al-Khalil called on all human rights organisations to intervene to put a limit to the suffering of Palestinian captives at the Atzion detention centre, and called on the Red Cross to visit the centre and see for themselves the tragic living conditions of the prisoners there.

Jacqueline Fararja, the lawyer working with PPS, said that the detention centre is not suitable for any living creature, it consists of 16 rooms, each one of them can hold up to 12 prisoners.

She added that the prisoners complain of the lack of hygiene in the detention centre which lacks necessary cleaning supplies to wash clothes, bathe or clean the living space and she clarified that in addition to lack of hygiene there is lack of medical attention.

She further said that the captives at the said detention centre have been living on bread and water over the past ten days because of the food served is small in quantity, of bad quality and usually served late and cold. Most meals do not even have salt.
