Palestinian women detainees in the Israeli prison facing unbearable health conditions

The Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs Commission said in a report that Palestinian women detainees in the Israeli prison of Damon, near Haifa, have been facing unbearable humanitarian and health conditions, including a deliberate policy of medical negligence.

The Commission said the women prisoners in Damon have been suffering at various levels, which include for instance the high humidity rate inside the prison rooms, the repeated power outages and the lack of doors for bathrooms.

The women prisoners are also suffering from the surveillance cameras recently installed at the yard of the prison, where the prisoners spend their daily 30-minute break, which compels conservative prisoners to remain in their Islamic wear to avoid being watched in an inconvenient clothing by male guards.
