The group expressed concern for Nabi Saleh’s Bassem Tamimi, “a prisoner of conscience, detained solely for the peaceful exercise of his right to freedom of expression”, and called for his release.
Tamimi was sentenced to four months in prison in early November for his part in a demonstration a month earlier. He was charged with “interference with the work of a police officer” and “participation in an unlicensed demonstration.”
Amnesty is also urging Israeli authorities to carry out “prompt and independent” investigations into the killing of Rushdi Tamimi and Hamdi Fallah in the West Bank during the latest Gaza assault.
Rushdi Tamimi died of injuries sustained at a demonstration in Nabi Saleh on Nov. 17. Israeli soldiers shot Fallah dead at a demonstration in Hebron on Nov. 19.

“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.
