15 PALESTINIAN FEMALE PRISONERS SUFFER POOR DETENTION CONDITIONS
5 Palestinian female prisoners are being imprisoned by Israel “under dire conditions” in Damon prison, according to a statement released by the PA committee for prisoners and ex-prisoners on Tuesday.
The 15 female prisoners are held in two cells in section 6 of the prison, the statement pointed out.
The prisoners complained of their transport in the “Bosta” to courts and back which takes three days each time.
In courts, they are obliged to wait for long hours in very cold and dirty rooms.
The statement noted that the jailed mothers continue to suffer severe psychological, physical, and emotional abuse as they are denied family and children’s visits for long periods.
As the world marks International Women’s Day, 65 Palestinian women, including 12 minors, are being imprisoned by Israel amid very difficult detention conditions.
