As the world marks on March 8 International Women’s Day, 56 Palestinian women, 12 of them minors under 18 years of age, are currently held in Israeli jails, Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) said on Monday.

The PPS pointed out that two female prisoners are serving time in administrative detention according to which they are held without charge or trial.

Lena Jarbouni, who is the longest serving Palestinian female prisoner in Israeli jails, was arrested in 2002 and is serving a 17-year sentence.

The 56 female prisoners are currently held in HaSharon and Damon prisons suffering harsh treatment and bad incarceration conditions by which they are treated inhumanely and denied access to the most basic rights including heating, winter clothing, medical treatment, and family visits, the PPS noted.

Israel detained 15,000 Palestinian women since its occupation of the West Bank, occupied Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip in 1967.

Video of the Week Israel votes to cut off power to Gaza.


Video: Allegations have come forth that Mahmoud Abbas (self proclaimed Palestinian "president") will - on top of asking israel to cut Gaza's power to one hour per day (just approved)now declare Gaza a rebel zone! This (if true) will mean the cutting of all aid to Gaza, the shut down of all bank accounts, stopping of all entry/exit and the international arrest warrants of Hamas officials... Calls for war have already been shouted from the rooftops with cuts to Gaza salaries by the PA, restrictions on diesel fuel (due to the PA refusing to pay), the electricity being cut down again and again (causing various problems for life in Gaza) but now it seems like the final nails are being ever so violently hammered into the coffin. If this rumour is true then conflict with Hamas is inevitable and "israel" will have the perfect excuse to massacre innocents in Gaza due to having a legal means to arrest Hamas members (who will not just hand themselves in obviously). Mahmoud Abbas is ready and willing to collectively punish the entire population of 2 million (mostly children) in the Gaza Strip in order to gain more power and to please his own oppressors. If the aid is stopped, the 80+ percent of Gazans reliant on international food aid will starve, 97% of the water in Gaza is also undrinkable, so with none coming in what's the alternative? The current conditions in Gaza would make any sane person cry and feel sick to the pit of their stomach and the so called president of Palestine is dancing around in his expensive suits licking the feet of his people's oppressors!!! Mahmoud Abbas has to go! This is disgusting! #SAVEGAZA
