33 Palestinian female prisoners are experiencing harsh conditions and brutal investigation sessions at Israel’s Damon prison.
Female detainees are continued to suffer psychological torture and deprivation of their basic human needs.
The Damon prison was opened in 1953 as a camp for detaining Palestinian prisoners. After being shut down in 2000, it was reopened during the Al-Aqsa Intifada.
It is located in Northern Palestine in the forests of Carmel in Haifa. It was established during the British mandate.
During their detention, Palestinian female prisoners are subjected to various human rights violations including confinement, threats of harm, sleep deprivation, and severe beating.
Israa Al-Jaabis is one of the female detainees who suffer different health problems.
The 36-year-old Palestinian mother suffers from first and third-degree burns on 60% of her body and is dependent on a fellow prisoner to assist her with simple tasks.
Over the past year, 178 Palestinian women were detained across the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.
Palestinian figures show that Israel continues to detain 4,850 Palestinians, including 40 women and 225 children, along with 540 who are detained with no charge or trial, under the Israeli administrative detention policy.
