On International Women´s Day, the occupation has arrested 16,000 women since 1967

 The Palestine Center for Prisoners Studies said today, Monday, that the cases of detention that have targeted Palestinian women by the Israeli occupation since 1967, have reached more than 16 thousand cases.

In a press release on the occasion of International Women's Day, which falls on the 8th of March of each year, the Center indicated that the occupation is still arresting 35 prisoners in Damoon Prison, among them 11 mothers, elderly and sick patients, all of whom are subjected to an organized campaign of repression, and are deprived of all their rights, and suffer The conditions are difficult and harsh, and they complain about the lack of privacy in the occupation prisons.

The Center accused international institutions of not paying attention to the suffering of Palestinian women who are exposed to all forms of abuse and persecution by the Israeli occupation, especially the prisoners inside prisons.

Riyadh Al-Ashqar, director of the center, said that the Palestinian prisoners are completely absent from the legal scene that has approved many texts to honor and protect women, safeguard their rights and redress them from injustice and persecution, as they are subjected to multiple repressive measures and are deprived of all their human rights.

Al-Ashqar referred to the torture, abuse, deprivation of rights, harsh rulings, and other forms of suffering that happen to Palestinian prisoners without interference from international institutions, considering that this categorically demonstrates that the slogans of women's rights that the international community praises are mere lies, and slogans with no content.

He said, "The female prisoners in the occupation prisons lack privacy as a result of the presence of 24-hour surveillance cameras installed by the prison administration in the prison corridors and the al-Furah square, as well as placing bathrooms outside the rooms and allowing their use at specific times only during the period of out-of-spree."

He added, "The prisoners also suffer from moving in a bosta car, as the occupation deliberately humiliates them with transportation operations by presenting them to the courts in close and frequent periods to impose more arbitrary abuse on them, as the prisoners are removed from the prison at four in the morning, and they return in the evening of the same day, which causes She has physical and psychological fatigue and exhaustion, and throughout the travel period they are tied with iron chains on hands and feet.

He continued, "In addition to their lack of clothes, winter blankets, canteen items, adequate and healthy food, and they are subjected to a policy of deliberate medical negligence, whether for sick cases among female prisoners or wounded women who were shot at the time of arrest, and female prisoners have complained for many years about the lack of a female doctor in the prison clinic to take care of the prisoners." And not dispensing suitable medicines for sick cases among them. "

Al-Ashqar stated that the female prisoners lack all the necessities of life, and the occupation imposed exaggerated rulings on some of them with false pretenses, as there are 8 female prisoners serving prison terms of more than 10 years.

He appealed to the international community and the various human rights institutions, especially those defending women's rights, to stop before their responsibilities, to deal impartially with the issues of Palestinian women, to listen to the cries of the Palestinian prisoners, and to intervene to put an end to their aggravating suffering.

At the same time, he called on the media to shed more light on the suffering of female prisoners and expose the violations they are subjected to in the prisons of the occupation, and his disdain for their lives, and their denial of all the rights stipulated in the humanitarian charters, especially the female patients, foremost among whom is the Jerusalemite captive "Israa Al-Jaabees" and "Nasreen Hassan."
