Palestinian female prisoners in the Israeli occupation prisons suffer from poor detention conditions, lack of health care, and they are deprived of their most basic rights stipulated in all international agreements.
Despite being sick with hydrocephalus, where the fluid accumulated in the brain needs to be removed periodically, an Israeli court sentenced Dina Jaradat, 23, to four months and a half in prison and a fine of 6000 Shekel.
On August 7, 2022, Israeli occupation forces arrested Jaradat from Jenin and deprived her of medical treatment during the 15-day interrogation period in Al-Jalama detention centre, despite her repeated requests.
Jaradat, who is a media student at Al-Quds Open University, was transferred last Saturday from Damon prison to the Israeli Rambam hospital due to her deteriorating health condition and returned to prison again.
In Damon prison, the number of female prisoners is 29, including 7 mothers. There are also 4 other female prisoners held in the Petah Tikva interrogation centre.
The impunity enjoyed by the leaders of the Israeli occupation, encourages them to commit more crimes against the Palestinian people, especially against the detainees, given the complete international silence.
