The borderline area between eastern Gaza Strip and Israel has been witnessing a series of violent actions and security tensions, mainly since the six-week rallies and marches organized in the coastal enclave in March 30 and will go on until May 15. "Global law guarantees the right of the occupied to resist the occupier".
According to PPS, 215 Palestinians have died in Israeli prisons since 1967, including 72 who died from torture, and 61 who died due to medical negligence.
The Palestinian Prisoners Center for Studies called on Human Rights and global bodies to pressure Israel to abide by the Geneva Conventions provisions and worldwide humanitarian law and respect the Palestinian prisoners rights.
The Commission explained that the number of administrative detention orders has increased sharply since 2002, noting that the detainees lose months or years of their lives inside the Israeli occupation cells without trial and continue to be brought before the courts without any sentence or charge.
Regardless of how this conflagration ends, the biggest losers will be the Israeli and Palestinian people. "The march is a massive, popular event, supporting the idea that the Palestinian people maintain their right to return and to stay on their lands", he tells Mondoweiss.
According to the Commission, there are now 427 Palestinians held in administrative detention. Israel's policy of intimidation and oppression, including daily arrest campaigns, nightly raids of children's homes, as well as the systematic physical and emotional abuse exacted on Palestinian detainees, particularly children, must end. The Ministry reiterates its commitment to exert all efforts at the multilateral level to achieve this goal. The State of Palestine thus reiterates its call to the Prosecutor to open an investigation into the situation in Palestine without further delay.
