Palestine Prisoners’ Club: 73 prisoners killed due to torture in Israeli jails since 1967

The Palestinian Society Prisoner’s Club (NGO) announced that since 1967, 73 Palestinian prisoners had been martyred as a result of torture during their interrogation by the Israeli occupation forces.The Club said in a statement, Wednesday, that the Israeli occupation authorities use several methods to torture Palestinian prisoners and detainees. These are both physical and psychological methods designed to strip them off of their humanity and pressure them to make confessions during the investigation period.The Club explained that 95 per cent of the detainees were subjected to torture from the moment of their arrest. This continues during the investigation and even after prisoners are placed in public detention centres.The Club further explained that in a prominent case, in 2013, Arafat Jaradat was killed by torture in the cells of Megiddo Prison five days after his arrest. In 2014, Israeli forces killed Yassin Al-Saradih at the time of his arrest after torturing him and shooting him at point-blank range. The same year, Nahshon forces (select units in prisons to suppress prisoners) killed the prisoner Aziz Eweisat after torturing him in the cells of Eshel Prison. He was then transferred to an Israeli hospital until the announcement of his martyrdom on 20 May 2018. On September of the same year, the occupation forces killed the detainee Mohammed Al-Khateeb (Al-Rimawi) the moment of his arrest from his home after being tortured. The latest prisoner to be killed as a result of torture during interrogation was detainee Nassar Taqatqa on 16 July 2019.
