Ramallah, 5 Jumadil Akhir 1438/4 March 2017 (MINA) – The Israeli Prison Service (IPS) moved 16 Palestinian female prisoners from HaSharon to Damon prison which has a terrible reputation.
Spokeswoman for Palestine center for prisoners’ studies Amina al-Tawil told the PIC reporter that the IPS transferred 16 female prisoners to Damon prison under the pretext of repair works, the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) reported.
Palestinian female prisoners have long complained of the unbearable detention conditions in section 11 in HaSharon prison where they repeatedly demanded repair works.
Al-Tawil pointed out that there are currently 51 Palestinian women imprisoned in Israeli jails, including 13 minor girls, in HaSharon and Damon prisons. They face difficult incarceration conditions and are deprived of their basic human rights.
12 female prisoners suffer difficult health problems due to the IPS’s deliberate medical negligence policy, she added.(T/R04/RS05)
