GAZA, (PIC)– Israeli Occupation Authority (IOA) detains three Palestinian female minors in Ashkelon isolation under very bad conditions. Two of the minors are still suffering from injuries by Israeli shooting at the time of arrest.
Riyadh al-Ashqar, media spokesman of Palestine Prisoners’ Center for Studies, revealed that the IOA transferred both detainees from hospitals to Ashkelon prison before completion of treatment. They are Istabrak Nour, 15, from Nablus, and Marah Bakir, 16, from Occupied Jerusalem. The third captive Jihan Ereqat, 17, from Abu Dis in Occupied Jerusalem was transferred from the Russian Compound to Ashkelon prison.
Ashqar said captive Bakir stayed 24 days receiving treatment in Hadassah Hospital, due to being shot by 10 Israeli bullets at arrest time, while she is cuffed to hospital bed by her hands and feet. Detainee Nour is suffering severe pain in the leg due to being shot by Israeli forces as well, he added.
Detention conditions of the three Palestinian minor girls are too harsh as they are held in a narrow room full of insects and dirt. They complain of poor food and deprivation of hot water for taking bath. There are no appliances for cooking and the room lacks cleaning tools and materials despite demanding such needs. Prison management refuses providing them with enough blankets, clothes and other needs, Ashqar pointed out.
