[ PIC 22/07/2014 – 12:12 PM ]


RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Soldiers of the Matsada, the Israeli prison service’s special unit, attacked Palestinian prisoners in Megiddo prison at night while offering Tarawih prayers.

Fuad al-Khafsh, the director of the Ahrar center for prisoner studies, said on Tuesday that Matsada unit soldiers broke into ward six of Megiddo jail, allocated for Hamas prisoners, on Sunday night and beat up the prisoners.

He said that altercations between the soldiers and the prisoners ensued after which the prisoners were forced out of their ward for search.

Khafsh stated that similar incidents took place on Monday night in a number of other prisons, adding that the Sunday night raid in Megiddo coincided with the Qassam Brigades’ declaration it had captured an Israeli soldier.

He said that Israeli special units stormed prisoner rooms in Negev, Nafha, and Raymond jails during which TV sets were confiscated.

“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.
