Palestinian detainees locked up in the Israeli Etzion jail, in the southern occupied West Bank, have received expired foodstuff, a rights group warned on Tuesday.
Lawyer Jacqueline Fararja, from the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS), said following a visit to the detainees on Monday evening that the Israeli prison authorities handed over expired canned food and cheese.
The lawyer said she inspected some of the expired cans which the majority of inmates were forced to eat as a result of hunger and food dearth.
PPS said a series of legal measures has been taken, in partnership with the Prisoners’ and Ex-Prisoners’ Commission, to push for shutting down Etzion lock-up
12 Palestinians are held in Etzion prison, among 6,500 Palestinians incarcerated in Israeli dungeons.
