RAMALLAH, (PIC)– 1,100 Palestinian detainees are crammed in the Israeli Ofer jail, a report by the prisoners’ and ex-prisoners’ committee said Monday. The committee spoke out against over-crowding in the Israeli Ofer lock-up, where over 1,100 Palestinian prisoners are incarcerated. The committee quoted the prisoners as launching distress signals over the lack of warm clothes and blankets and the preplanned medical neglect perpetrated by the prison authorities against sick inmates. Dozens of detainees also said they have been subjected to harsh torture and mistreatment during the investigation and detention phases. Several other inmates have also been made to endure exhausting inter-prison transfers.
