The Jerusalemite prisoner, Samer Al-Atrash, entered Wednesday, June 14, 2023, his 21st consecutive year in the Israeli occupation prisons.
Al-Atrash was detained on 14/6/2003, and the Occupation Court sentenced him to 8 life imprisonment, in addition to another 50 years.
It is noteworthy that the Palestinian prisoner Al-Atrash is married and a father of 3 children, and he is currently in the “Nafha” Israeli prison and suffers from several health problems, as the occupation authorities keep denying him the appropriate treatment.
Israeli occupation authorities currently hold some 4900 Palestinians in prisons, including 160 children and 31 women.
In the absence of strong pressure to stop the systemic inhumane abuses, the racist and fascist policies of the Prison Service Administration have a negative impact on Palestinian detainees.
