NABLUS, (PIC)– The international Tadamun (solidarity) society for human rights strongly denounced the Israeli occupation forces for using police dogs to subdue protest marches or to arrest civilians, affirming such action violates international law and anti-torture agreements.

Spokesman for Tadamun society Ahmed Al-Beitawi stated in a press release that Israel’s use of dogs to quell peaceful marches taking place in the West Bank villages is prohibited and considered a form of torture under international law and UN human rights conventions.

Spokesman Beitawi noted that there may be some people who suffer from neurological diseases or heart problems and are more prone to epileptic seizures and heart attacks that could lead to their death if they were attacked by dogs.

He stressed that the use of dogs against the Palestinians reflects Israel’s moral degradation and the extent of its disregard for the dignity of Palestinian citizens.

A Palestinian young man named Ahmed Shetewi from Kafr Qaddum village in Qalqiliya city was seriously injured when he was attacked by dogs unleashed by Israeli troops against the anti-wall march held on Friday afternoon in the village.
