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, sleep deprivation, and severe beating.
