As the world marks Mother’s Day, the Israeli occupation continues to hold 29 Palestinian women in its jails, including five mothers.
The detained women, who are all held in the Damon jail, are deprived of hugging their children and loved ones during visitations, and some of them are even deprived of having family visits.
The imprisoned mothers are: Israa Al-Jaabis, Fadwa Hamada, Amani Al-Hashim, Ataf Jaradat, and Yasmine Shaaban.
Female detainees continue 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 uprising.
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 beatings.
