GALILEE, (PIC)– A Palestinian prisoner in Israeli jails stopped drinking water on Wednesday one week after starting a hunger strike protesting his incarceration along with Israeli homicide convicts.

Mohammed Kanaana, from Araba town in the Galilee occupied since 1948, charged the Israeli Shatta prison administration with deliberately putting him alongside criminals despite being a security prisoner.

He told his lawyer that the prison administration left him in the prison yard for 14 hours and threatened to beat him after his refusal to enter a jail cell in the midst of homicide convicts.

Kanaana said that the prison administration also deprives him of all his rights and denies him family visits.

Kanaana was arrested in June 2011 and sentenced to three months in jail after accusing him of beating an Israeli policeman and throwing stones during marches marking the Nakba day. He was held in house arrest after his release then he was again detained in April 2012 and sentenced to 15 months.

“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.
