Four affidavits released by Palestinians behind Israeli prison bars provided new evidence of mistreatment during the pre-detention phase.
A lawyer from the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) quoted 21-year-old detainee Jihad Muqbil, from Beit Ummar, as stating that an Israeli patrol stormed his family’s home at predawn time on July 11 and wreaked havoc on the building using sniffer dogs, before they aggressively beat Jihad using rifle butts.
Prisoner Hasan al-Jawabra, aged 25 and from the Arroub refugee camp, said Israeli soldiers ransacked his family’s home on July 11, 2018 and smashed the entrance gate, shortly before they subjected him to violent beating and dragged him to the Etzion detention center.
15-year-old minor Ahmed Rafat al-Badawi also said Israeli occupation forces broke into his family’s home at the crack of dawn on July 16, 2018 and beat him violently.
At the same time, prisoner Hamdi al-Atrash, 27, said Israeli soldiers hit him in his injured knee. His frequent appeals for urgent treatment have gone unheeded by the occupation authorities.
