The report pointed out that after 26 years of this case, the former Vice President of the "Shabak", Yitzhak Ilan, repeated the same lying, as a result of what happened to Samer al-Arbeed, a 44-year-old Palestinian prisoner, was transferred to the hospital in case Critical after being tortured by the Shabak.

"By dismissing these ridiculous forms of denial, as a doctor and founder of the organization, I have always been troubled by how Israeli doctors collaborate with and empower the torture industry in Israel," the report quoted Physicians for Human Rights president Rochama Marton as saying.

He revealed that there was a medical document of the Israeli intelligence service, provided by the Shabak doctor, about whether the prisoner in question had any medical restrictions when it came to keeping him in isolation, whether he could be tied, whether his face could be covered, or whether He could have been forced to defend himself for long periods of time.

He added that the "Shabak" denied the existence of such a document at all, but four years later appeared a second document, requiring doctors to sign the torture in accordance with several items agreed in advance.

Torture is widespread

He added that "the issue of the Palestinian prisoner, along with countless cases, reflects the moral, moral and practical failure of the medical establishment in Israel to torture."

"Torture - which includes mental and physical cruelty - continues to occur on a large scale, because the real purpose of torture and humiliation is to break the prisoner's spirit and body to eliminate his personality," he said.

He pointed out that the "Shabak" document, which is signed by his collaborators, allows prisoners to be deprived of sleep, and allows interrogators to expose prisoners to extreme temperatures, beating them, tying them for long hours in painful positions, and forcing them to stand for hours until the vessels in their feet explode, covering Their heads for long periods of time, and their sexual humiliation, to break their morale by severing their relationships with family and lawyers, and keeping them in isolation until they lose their mind.
