Calls to stop Israeli violations against Palestinian prisoners during Eid

GAZA, (PIC)– The Palestine Center for Prisoners Studies called for a halt of Israeli brutal violations against Palestinian prisoners during Eid.

The center wished, in a statement issued on Thursday, a happy and blessed Eid for all Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, nearly 4600 detainees, on the auspicious occasion of Eid ul-Adha, hoping that they would be free by the next Eid.

Riad Ashkar, the center’s director, called on human rights and humanitarian organizations topped by the Red Cross to pressure the Israeli occupation to stop its arbitrary practices against prisoners during Eid, where they are trying on this occasion to forget their wounds and suffering, and to share Eid blessings despite their different political orientations and affiliations, showing a great will and determination despite any Israeli measures.

Ashkar confirmed that during such occasions, the Israeli authorities deliberately implement arbitrary practices against Palestinian prisoners, including depriving prisoners of family visits, and preventing exchange visits between the prisoners’ rooms, and moving detainees between prisons, isolating some of the prisoners in solitary confinement, preventing them from performing Eid prayer, in addition to exercising searches and raids at the night before Eid, aiming to spoil their joy of Eid.

The center also called on international institutions to pressure the occupation to allow prisoners’ families’ visits from the Gaza strip which will ease their suffering.

The center also called on The Palestinian people and factions to visit the prisoners’ families during the Eid days, to ease their pain and heartbreak because of their sons’ absence in the Eid.
