One of the torture methods used by the Israeli occupation

OSLO, (PIC)– UFree Network to defend the rights of Palestinian prisoners strongly condemned killing the detainee Arafat Jaradat, 30, by the Israeli intelligence in Megiddo prison, because of extreme torture.

The Network demanded, in a statement on Monday, opening an international investigation to prosecute Jaradat’s killers. It also held the Israel Prison Administration fully responsible for the death of Jaradat on Saturday, February 23.

It said that Jaradat was subjected to systematic torture the effects of which have clearly appeared on his body, according to the autopsy report, and confirmed the falsehood of the occupation authorities’ claims that Jaradat died of a cardiac arrest.

UFree stressed that the rights of the Palestinian prisoners are guaranteed by all international conventions, specifically the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949.

It has also revealed that it will be acting at the international level, through European Parliament delegation visit to the prisoners and their families and will seek to put the issue of Palestinian prisoners on the agenda of UN human council which is due to meet next month.
