On Saturday, the Israeli occupation prisons administration informed the prisoners of Damon Prison of the death of their fellow old prisoner Saadia Matar Faraj Allah, 68, inside prison.
The deceased prisoner lost consciousness after finishing ablution and prisoners transferred her immediately to the Damon prison clinic where she died.
Saadia is from Dahna, west of Hebron, south of the occupied West Bank. She is the oldest prisoner in the occupation prisons, and she is a mother of eight.
The occupation forces arrested her on December 18, 2021, after beating her until she fainted near the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron.
Last Tuesday, Saadia attended her court session in a wheelchair, and her lawyer requested that she gets examined by a specialist doctor after medical examinations showed results of diabetes, high blood pressure, and general health deterioration, which was met with medical negligence, leading to her death.
The prisoners in Damoun prison are subjected to very harsh detention conditions, in addition to beatings, insults and abuse, as well as all kinds of physical and psychological torture.
The Israeli occupation also places female prisoners in solitary cells that are unfit for human detention, deprives them of sleep for long hours, hangs them by their hands and intimidates them.
With the death of Saadia Faraj Allah, the number of prisoners who died in the occupation prisons from 1967 has reached 230. She is the second female prisoner to die in prison, after the death of Fatima Taqatqa, from Bethlehem, who was arrested after being shot by the occupation and died in May 2017 at the Israeli Shari Tsaidk hospital.
