He's been imprisoned for nearly a year uncharged. Extending his term another six months blatantly violates agreement terms. Addameer fears he'll resume striking and risk death. He's extremely frail and can't tolerate much more.
Addameer also believes this breach means others will follow. Hundreds of hunger strikers will be betrayed.
Numerous other violations already occurred. Others will follow. Striker Dirar Abu Sisi remains isolated. He wasn't returned to the general prison population as promised. Another Palestinian was also placed in solitary confinement.
Israel promised to end the practice. It's ordered punitively for revenge.
Five weeks after May 14 terms were finalized, Addameer sees "no change in Israel's overall administrative detention policy" and other draconian practices.
They'll continue without sustained worldwide pressure to end them.
A Final Comment
On June 22, the Palestine News Network headlined "178 International Decisions in Condemnation of Israel's Mistreatment of Palestinian Prisoners," saying:
June 26 is International Day against Torture. It denounces the practice. It honors victims. It also supports them and survivors worldwide.
A Detainees and Ex-Detainees Society report "reveal(s) that (Israeli authorities continue to) tortur(e) Palestinian prisoners and humiliat(e) them."
It deprives them of their humanity and dignity. It's not for interrogation purposes. Men, women and young children are abused. Israel makes no distinction.
Photos show Israeli authorities "appear happy and proud of their handiwork."
"The International Day against Torture addresses the physical and psychological torture used continuously by the Israeli interrogators...."- Advertisement -
"(I)mmediate intervention" is urgently needed to "condemn (these) crimes....in serious violation of international humanitarian law."
Minister of Detainees and Ex-Detainees society, Issa Qaraqe, called on UN authorities "to declare that Israel is not a state above the international humanitarian law, and to withdraw its membership from the UN because it hasn't respected the human rights law and the UN conventions, which were the main reason to for accepting Israel as member state in the UN."
