Palestinian prisoners suffer from skin diseases in Israeli prisons

Sunday 21-January-2024


The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) warned on Sunday of “the dangerous spread of diseases and epidemics among Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, mainly skin diseases.”

According to the PPS, “the Israeli prison service (IPS) has escalated the tight restrictions and systematic torture against Palestinian prisoners that were imposed following the Aqsa Flood Operation in an unprecedented manner.”

“The IPS intensified medical crimes against Palestinian detainees, surpassing the policy of intentional medical negligence, which has been the primary cause of many prisoners’ martyrdom in Israeli prisons in the last few years,” the PPS statement said.

According to PPS, 6,170 Palestinians have been detained in the occupied West Bank since October 7.
