OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Palestinian captive movement declared it plans to start as of next Tuesday protest steps in solidarity with the hunger strikers in Israeli jails.

In a statement, the leadership of the captive movement stated that the prisoners will start their steps by refusing to take some meals to pressure the Israeli prison administrations to respond to the demands of the hunger strikers.

Their statement warned that the prisoners would not stand by idly if any hunger striker died and there would be serious repercussions for the Israeli disregard for the lives of prisoners.

For his part, Tawfiq Abu Naim, head of the association of detainees and ex-detainees, warned that the Palestinian prisoners suffer from very poor incarceration conditions in Israeli jails.

Abu Naim told the Palestinian information center (PIC) that the Israeli prison administrations have escalated their pressures and violations lately against the prisoners.

He affirmed that the pressure would lead to an imminent explosion in Israeli jails and there would be consequences unless the prison administrations took remedial steps to improve their imprisonment conditions.

“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.
