Last November, Israeli occupation forces detained 380 Palestinian citizens, including 41 children and 11 women, from various Palestinian cities according to Palestine Center for Prisoner Studies.
The Palestine Center for Prisoner Studies reported that the occupation forces raided hundreds of times the cities and towns of the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem, carrying out arrest, search and confiscation operations against Palestinians. They detained hundreds of Palestinians, most of whom were released after days and weeks of illegal detention.
Israeli occupation forces detained 41 minors, the youngest of whom are the two children, Youssef Muhammad Odeh and Habib Allah Ibrahim Aslim, from the town of Huwwara, south of Nablus, who are students in the sixth grade of primary school. They were detained while they were leaving Omar Bin Al-Khattab Basic School in the town.
The Palestinian Prisoners Club documented about 6,000 cases of arrest from the beginning of this year until November, including 141 women and 739 children.
IOF detain 15 Palestinians from Gaza
Israeli occupation forces detained 15 Palestinian citizens from the Gaza Strip, including 10 fishermen, who were detained while fishing offshore Gaza, and released later.
While 4 citizens were detained at the Beit Hanoun / Erez checkpoint while they were traveling to the occupied Palestinian territory, some of them have work permits, and a citizen was detained near the eastern border in the northern Gaza Strip.
145 Palestinians detained in Jerusalem
During November, the occupation authorities continued the arrests against Jerusalemites, as the Israeli forces detained more than 145 Palestinian citizens, including 21 children and 8 women.
The occupation courts issued 7 administrative detention decisions against Jerusalemite prisoners, and 14 deportation orders, of which 8 were from the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, affecting two women.
It also issued 17 house arrest orders against Palestinians in Jerusalem, ranging from several days to an open period, which targeted 3 children and two women.
In a related context, the occupation courts issued 28 actual prison sentences against Palestinians, including 9 administrative detention sentences.
Israeli occupation takes away the freedom of 11 women
During the month of November, the Israeli occupation forces detained 11 Palestinian women after assaulting them in several Palestinian cities.
The female Palestinian detainees inside the occupation prisons face difficult life and detention conditions, as the occupation practices all methods of torture and psychological and physical pressure against them, without considering their privacy and needs.
Nisreen Abu Kamil, a female Palestinian ex-detainee who was in the Israeli Damon prison, says that the most prominent violation practiced by the occupation against female prisoners is psychological torture, such as depriving them of seeing their children and families, preventing them from families visits.
She added that they are also subjected to physical torture such as beating and solitary confinement in a very narrow cell, in addition to medical neglect which she described as the most severe form of torture against female prisoners.
The head of the Palestinian Prisoners Club, Qaddoura Fares, says that the Israeli occupation practices violence and a policy of medical neglect against Palestinian female prisoners, especially those who were shot by the occupation forces and detained immediately, without providing them with appropriate medical treatment, even if it was a pain reliever.
Moreover, the Israeli occupation takes advantage of their urgent need for treatment as a result of their injuries, by exerting more pressure on them and stripping them of their humanity.
Since the beginning of this year, the occupation authorities have detained 111 Palestinian women, 32 of whom are still imprisoned, including 8 mothers and 7 wounded women, according to the Palestinian Prisoner Club.
182 administrative detention orders
In November alone, the Israeli occupation courts issued more than 182 administrative detention orders against Palestinian citizens, ranging from two months to six months of detention without charge.
According to the Palestinian Center for Prisoner Studies, among the administrative orders, 71 are new orders, and 111 are renewal orders for other periods, which reached the fifth time for some Palestinian detainees, bringing the number of administrative detention orders issued since the beginning of this year to approximately 2,000 orders.
More than 30 Palestinian detainees are disabled
Until the end of November, the number of detainees with disabilities inside the occupation prisons reached more than 30 detainees suffering from difficult health, psychological and physical conditions.
In its report on the occasion of the International Day for Persons with Disabilities on December 3, the Palestine Center for Prisoners Studies said that the Israeli occupation detains in its prisons more than 30 Palestinians who suffer from disabilities in all forms, whether physical or psychological and are subject to harsh conditions of detention that increase their suffering.
It pointed out that the repressive practices of the occupation against the detainees contributed to increasing the number of people with disabilities in prisons, foremost of which is the practice of cruel and forbidden methods of torture, and solitary confinement, which led to the injury of a number of them with permanent or partial disabilities, as well as shooting citizens before their arrest, which caused them various disabilities.
Palestinian prisoners with disabilities live double suffering among other prisoners, because they suffer from the occupation’s violations and its criminal practices against prisoners, as well as suffering from disability and inability to move, and the need for others to move and practice life activities inside the prison.
In addition, the occupation prisons are devoid of auxiliary medical devices for people with special needs, such as prostheses for those without arms and legs, medical glasses, wheelchairs, medical mattresses, and corsets. Also, special medical devices for prisoners who cannot walk are not provided, as well as respirators for patients with asthma and chronic bronchitis.
The occupation also refuses the entry of these medical devices through private institutions or human rights organizations, and they are also not allowed to enter from their families and relatives.
It also does not allow non-sick prisoners to be present in Ramla Prison Hospital to support disabled prisoners in movement, preparing food, taking medicines, showering, and other things.
Above all, the occupation does not provide psychiatrists to follow up on the cases of prisoners who have mental illnesses as a result of prison conditions and isolation, and this increases the suffering of disabled prisoners in Israeli prisons.
