Farwana said in a press statement that among the martyrs, Mohammad Safi Al-Ashqar from Tulkarm, who was martyred on October 22, 2007, in the Negev desert detention due to a bullet wound to the head, and that hundreds of detainees who were peacefully protesting against Deteriorating conditions and ill-treatment, the intervention of the special forces of repression in the prison and excessive use of force against the detainees, which led to the death of "Al-Ashqar" and wounding about (250) detainees.

It has become a regular part of the treatment of detainees, to the extent that it is sometimes repeated within the same prison more than once a day, and many times occur in more than one prison at the same time.

Towards accepting the decisions and directives of the prison administration and the de facto policy, especially as this phenomenon has expanded in space and has increased in number and intensified violence in recent years.
He pointed out that the use of excessive force against them under various pretexts, have the blessing and encouragement of the higher authorities in the occupation state, which formed for this purpose special forces of repression known as the forces of "Nakhshon and Dror and Mitsada and Alimaz and others."
