  Torture at Israel’s Damon children jail: Further witnesses surfaced

By َQudsN <http://qudsnen.co/?author=2> / January 27, 2020

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- New witnesses by Palestinian children, who 
were recently transferred to Damon jail before being transferred to Ofer 
jail last Wednesday, have surfaced.

The Committee of Prisoners and Former Prisoners revealed in a report 
issued on Sunday that the conditions in Damon jail are “disastrous” and 
not suitable for humans, according to the prisoner Khalil Jabbarin.

Jabbarin stated that after he, and other children, were sent to the 
jail, the Israeli prison administration ordered them to choose 
representatives instead of the adult prisoners, who represent them but 
the children refused the Israeli order.

Jabbarin added that “the Israelis repressed all the children, who 
declared a state of rebellion in protest against the appalling 
conditions inside the jail and against separating them from their 
representatives”.

Four children were put in solitary confinement, including Jabbarin, who 
was accused of incitement against the jailers.

“A lot of the children, who were sent to Damon jail, declared an open 
hunger strike in protest against the horrible conditions in jail”, said 
Jabbarin. “Among those who went on hunger strike, Riyadh Omour, who was 
stripped of his clothes and was threatened to remain undressed unless he 
ends his hunger strike”.

The Committee stressed that the Israeli escalation against Palestinian 
children violates all international laws and basic human rights. It 
called on the international community and human rights organizations to 
immediately intervene to stop the Israeli assaults against children.
