Israel treats Palestinian prisoners horrifically. In detention, interrogations include torture, intimidation and other abuses.
“Security prisoners” are punitively isolated for extended periods. Others for any reason or none at all face similar short or longer-term treatment.
Administrative detainees are held indefinitely without charges or trial. Children are treated like adults.
Horrific conditions include severe overcrowding; poor ventilation and sanitation; no change of clothes or adequate clothing; wooden planks with thin mattresses for beds; filthy blankets; inadequate food in terms of quality, quantity or conformance with dietary requirements; poor medical care; and hindered access to family members and counsel, among other abuses.
