The office indicated that the "Damoun" Prison administration continues to isolate the Jerusalemite prisoner Fadwa Hamadeh in the cells of prison for the 80th day in a row, as well as the prisoner Nawal Fatiha for the fifth day in a row.

Both of them are laid in a cramped, dark cell that smells foul, not suitable for human life, and there are surveillance cameras around the clock, denying them any kind of privacy, in addition to the poor quality and quantity of food provided to them.

It is noteworthy that the Israeli occupation practices a policy of solitary confinement against Palestinian prisoners, and it constitutes one of the harsh types of punishment practiced by the prison administration against Palestinian detainees.

The Israeli occupation isolates the captive for a long time in a single, dark and dirty cell that may contain insects or rodents; Which exposes the Palestinian prisoners to physical and psychological illnesses.
