While Yasmine Jaber, Nihaya Sawan, and journalist Ghosheh, who is incarcerated in Hasharon are all held inside Ramleh Jail.

Among the Palestinian female detainees, Shorouk Dwaiyat, Nourhan Awad, Marah Bakir, and Esraa Jaabis are four injured women who experience medical negligence and ill treatement inside Israeli jails.

In “Damoon,” 39 female convicts endure challenging living conditions along with journalist Ghosheh, who is incarcerated in Hasharon jail, other prisoners including Israa Jaabis, Fadwa Hamada, Yasmine Jaber, and Nihaya Sawan, all of whom are women.

Journalist “Ghosheh” is accused of “incitement and support for the resistance factions” after posting a photo of the martyr Ibrahim Al-Nabulsi brandishing a weapon on her Facebook page.

After searching journalist Ghosheh’s home in the occupied Jerusalem district of Sheikh Jarrah and seizing her computer, the occupation forces detained her on the fourth of this month.

The Ministry of Detainees and Ex-Detainees in Gaza reported that 25 Palestinian prisoners were already being held in Israeli prisons prior to the signing of the Oslo agreement, which has been in effect for 29 years and has blatantly ignored the issue of prisoners in its articles. Some of those prisoners have been held for more than 35 years.
