Horrible details on Palestinian children treatment in Damon jail

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- The Committee of Prisoners and Former Prisoners unveiled horrible details about the conditions of 33 Palestinian children prisoners, who were recently transferred from Ofer to Damon Israeli jails.

The committee said in a report issued on Tuesday that after the children arrived at the Damon jail, they were thrown in section (1), which has been abandoned for a long time and infested with insects and cockroaches and not suitable for human occupancy.

The statement added that the section, which lacks ventilation and sunlight, has five small rooms, three of them have no windows at all while the two others have two small windows. The ceilings of the rooms are too low and the rooms are too small, not mentioning the very bad smell of the section.

The transferred children do not have any of their basic needs. They do not have any water heaters or any cooking tools. They were only allowed to take their clothes and blankets with them.

Last week, the children announced a state of rebellion in protest against their horrible conditions. The measures that they followed included banging on cells’ doors, breaking some cupboards, screaming and insulting the jailers, according to the report.

However, the jail administration used a repression unit against the children, which brutally beat and handcuffed them for lengthy periods, sprayed them with pepper gas, confiscated their belongings, and transferred some of them to the Jalameh jail, which is even worse.
