PA condemns Israel for targeting prisoner

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — Israel’s decision to toughen conditions of Palestinian prisoners constitutes violation of human rights and international conventions on rights of war prisoners, the Palestinian Authority said Monday.

Its decision amounts to collective punishment and all countries must abide by international conventions at all times, the PA said in a statement calling the responsibility “a duty, not a choice.”

“Is it disturbing that a country, which claims to be democratic, uses the abuse of human rights as an act of government policy,” the statement from the Palestinian Government Media Center said.
