#PalHunger | Prisoners in Ramle jail threaten to go on hunger strike

[ PIC 08/01/2013 – 04:03 PM ]


RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Palestinian prisoners in the Israeli Ramle jail have threatened to go on hunger strike en masse in view of deterioration of their incarceration conditions.

Lawyers of the Palestinian prisoner’s association quoted those prisoners as demanding a solid backing of their position.

The prisoners were quoted as saying that they were facing “slow death” and that their isolation from the world increased their suffering.

They described the Ramle prison clinic as a “slaughterhouse”, noting that some of them suffer chronic disease and others were paralyzed.

The prisoners said that one of them, Mohammed Nashbat, was rushed to the clinic for an urgent heart surgery after his health condition worsened.

“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.
