OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– A Palestinian family appealed to human rights groups to intervene to have its son Murad Aliyan released from Israel’s Maskobiyeh detention center in west Jerusalem, saying he is in a very poor health condition.
Murad Aliyan, from Ras Al-Amud district in east Jerusalem, was detained about 20 days ago and started an open-ended hunger strike two weeks ago in protest at his arbitrary detention, according to his family.
The family told the Palestinian information center (PIC) that its son is held on unfounded security allegations.
In a separate incident, the Israeli police and army intensified their arrest campaign in different areas of east Jerusalem against participants in pro-Gaza protests, taking advantage of the world media’s preoccupation with its aggression against Gaza.
According to local sources, scores of Palestinian young men from different neighborhoods in east Jerusalem have been detained recently and sent to Maskubiya jail.
They added that the Israeli police and intelligence agency interrogate dozens of young detainees every day before sending them either to other prisons or courts for trials.
The sources noted that the Israeli occupation imposed a news blackout on its arrest campaign in east Jerusalem, affirming that about 350 Palestinians from Jerusalem have been jailed since the war on Gaza started.

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.
