RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The newly released prisoner Mazen Al-Natsheh described the administrative detention used by Israel against the Palestinians as slow death and a life sentence with probation.

“The administrative prisoner only knows the date of his arrest and knows nothing after this date. He is like buried in the tomb of political arrest and has no idea when he will go out,” Natsheh said in a press statement to the Palestinian information center (PIC).

He added that the prisoner in administrative detention also does not know why he was arrested, while the Israeli jailers keep extending his imprisonment without stating the reasons.

Natsheh also revealed some side of the psychological situation which the Palestinian prisoners live in after the death of prisoner Arafat Jaradat.

“Following this incident, the prisoners became psychologically anxious, unstable and confused and they now fear for their lives from the Zionist arrogance and the hatred residing in the hearts of the Shabak men. The stroke of a pen sends a prisoner from his cell to interrogation rooms which became death chambers, and we do not know if he will return dead or alive,” the ex-detainee stated.

“Our hunger strikers are going through the most difficult days of their lives because the prison authority does not care anymore if they die or survive, not to mention that their health conditions are very disturbing and many of them suffered from chronic diseases,” he noted.

Natsheh was released on Sunday and was received at Addaheriya checkpoint, southwest of Al-Khalil city, by some Hamas officials and a massive crowd of citizens.
