[ PIC 28/11/2012 – 12:13 PM ]

GAZA, (PIC)– A Palestinian organization called on humanitarian institutions and international human rights organizations to support the Palestinian female prisoners and to work for their release from Israeli jails.

The Palestinian Center for Prisoners’ Studies stated, in its report issued on Tuesday on the occasion of “International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women “, that the occupation has arrested more than 10 thousand Palestinian women since the start of the Israeli occupation in 1948, more than 950 of them were arrested during the last twelve years (since the Al-Aqsa Intifada in 2000).

The report pointed out that 11 Palestinian women are still today in Israeli jails, including minors, Hadeel Abu Turki and Ala al-Jubeh. Only three of them were sentenced in prison, while the eight other detainees are imprisoned without trial until now, including three liberated prisoners.

According to the report, the occupation authorities are holding the female prisoners in harsh tragic conditions, practicing all forms of violence and torture and ill-treatment against them in light of the Israeli organized campaign to affect all aspects of the female prisoners’ lives in order to determine the psychological situation of each of them.”
