Israeli doctors torture Palestinian prisoners

RAMALLAH, Palestine (AA): A Palestinian committee on Saturday accused Israeli doctors of torturing Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

In a statement, the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO)’s committee on detainees claimed Israeli doctors working with prison and security services and in military camps tortured detainees and subjected them to psychological pressure.

“The doctors systematically neglected the detainees’ health and did not abide by the ethics of the medical profession and international and humanitarian conventions,” it said.

The panel claimed Israeli doctors had filed reports suggesting the prisoners’ ability to endure torture.

“They also refrained from intervening to provide treatment for prisoners…and did not oppose bargain for treatment in exchange for confession,” it said.

There was no comment from Israeli authorities on the committee’s claims.

Over 7,000 Palestinians are currently languishing in prisons in Israel, according to the Palestinian government.
