AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Israeli soldiers routinely assault Palestinian prisoners in the detention center Gush Etzion, north Al-Khalil, the Palestinian Prisoners society said on Sunday.
The prisoners told the PPS lawyer that they were beaten with rifle butts and kicked by soldiers when they were in Etzion.
The PPS said that Amjad and Mahmoud Abu Maria, from Beit Ummar village, north of Al-Khalil city, were among the prisoners and told the lawyer of the incident that usually recur in that notorious detention center.
They reported that their incarceration conditions were increasingly difficult in light of the overcrowding, in addition to the daily abuse, malnutrition and racist practices of the occupation forces. The soldiers transferred detainees from Gush Etzion barefooted to the courts in prison of Ofer, west of Ramallah, they added.
The prisoners are detained in iron cells in very high temperature and without ventilation, the center added.
