QALQILIA, (PIC)– Hamas MP in Qalqilia Emad Nofal lashed out at the Israeli prisons service for its inhuman treatment of Palestinian prisoner Othman Younis from Qalqilia district.

He said in a statement on Monday that what happened to Younis was the latest in a series of brutal treatment of Palestinian detainees in occupation jails.

The lawmaker said that what Younis told his lawyer violated all norms, rules, and ethics.

Nofal urged the UN organizations and human rights groups to urgently intervene to end such practices against the Palestinian prisoners.

Younis told the lawyer of the Palestinian prisoner’s association that six jailors broke into his cell, tied and beat him up after completely striping him. He could not move from his cell bed for a few days even to the bathroom because of the resulting severe pain.

He added that the prison administration was not content with the beating, and opened monitoring cameras on him round the clock and did not stop the practice despite his strong objection.
