#PalHunger | UFree calls for pressuring Israel to provide medical care for hunger strikers

[ PIC 03/09/2012 – 10:07 AM ]

GENEVA, (PIC)– The European network to support the rights of Palestinian Prisoners-UFree called on the Red Cross and the world health organization to necessarily intervene to pressure the Israeli regime to provide proper medical care for the hunger strikers in its jails.

UFree said two of the Palestinian hanger strikers were transferred to Assaf Harofeh hospital due to their poor health conditions, while hunger striker Ayman Sharawna were blackmailed into breaking his strike in exchange for a palliative injection.

It said that what happened to prisoner Sharawna was a humanitarian crime and noted that the prisoners’ right to full medical treatment is enshrined in international law, but Israel deliberately neglects the detainees medically to punish them.

“On Torture” is an edited volume of essays by Palestinian, Israeli and international legal and medical experts and practitioners based on presentations that they gave during a workshop held in Jerusalem in April 2011 entitled, “Securing Accountability for Torture and Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment (CIDT) in Israel: New Trends and Comparative Lessons”.

The essayists explore the history of torture in Israel, the daily challenges that practitioners face in seeking accountability for torture and CIDT in Israel, and the changing face of torture.
