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
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.
