Palestinians call on Red Cross to intervene and provide protection to Palestinian prisoners

RAMALLAH, Monday, September 20, 2021 (WAFA) – Hundreds of Palestinians today took part in sit-ins held in front of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) premises across multiple West Bank cities in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

Participants in the sit-ins, which were organized by Palestinian national and Islamic factions and various institutions involved in prisoners’ affairs, called on ICRC to promptly intervene and provide protection to Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, particularly the six prisoner escapees, who were subjected to severe torture after they were recaptured by Israel.

Protesters called on international institutions to pressure Israel to end its policy of administrative detention, and to work attentively to save the lives of sick and hunger-striking prisoners in Israeli jails.

The Israel Prison Services IPS waged sort of a war against all the prisoners following news of the escape of the six prisoners, raiding and attacking them in their cells, moving them to other prisons, separating them, isolating some, and denying them certain rights, including family visits and buying from the canteen.
