Euro-Med reveals that Israel is engaged in mass-torture of civilian Palestinian detainees


Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor stated that it has received new testimonies from recently released Palestinian detainees, confirming ongoing systematic use of severe torture and inhumane treatment against thousands of Palestinian civilians in Israeli prisons and detention centers.

According to Euro-Med, the Israeli occupation army has forcibly injected Palestinian detainees, who were kidnapped during the war on Gaza, with unknown substances, leaving scars and distinctive marks on their bodies.

It added that Israel practices killing, rape, and other forms of sexual violence and torture against detainees and prisoners.

“Israel continues to commit violent acts of torture, inhuman and degrading treatment against thousands of Palestinian civilians in a systematic manner, who have been detained as part of the genocide”, it added.

According to testimonies from released Palestinian detainees, as per the Observatory, Israeli forces continue a path of severe and retaliatory torture against Palestinian detainees despite knowing they are civilians.

The Euro-Med called on international justice institutions and the global community to break their silence, articulate strong stances, and take serious steps regarding the revealed brutal torture, discrimination, collective revenge, and dehumanization suffered by Palestinian civilians, both men and women.

In its report, the Euro-Med emphasized the urgent need to compel Israel to end all its crimes against Palestinian prisoners and detainees, including torture, inhumane treatment, and enforced disappearances practiced against thousands of them.
