Teheran, 10 Jumadil Akhir 1434/20 April 2013 (MINA) – The Israeli regime is injecting Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails with “dangerous viruses” before releasing them, a report says.
Russian media reported as quoted by Press TV a Palestinian released from Israeli jails, Rania Saqa, has brought to light that the Israeli regime injected detainees that are out of prisons with dangerous viruses.
“Many of the prisoners are suffering from mysteriously incurable diseases such as bladder cancer and liver disorders,” Saqa said.
Saqa said it is a standard procedure for Israelis to inject Palestinian detainees before freeing them. “Most former inmates die after being released from Israeli jails,” the newspaper wrote.
The media reported Palestinian prisoners are calling on international organizations to take urgent action to stop this.
A rights organization has accused Israel of using Palestinian prisoners to test new drugs. The International Solidarity for Human Rights Institute said such conduct blatantly contradicts moral and medical principles.
According to human rights group B’Tselem, more than 4,700 Palestinian prisoners, including about 170 administrative detainees, are currently being held in Israeli prisons.
Administrative detention is a sort of imprisonment without trial or charge that allows Israel to incarcerate Palestinians for up to six months. The detention order can be renewed for indefinite periods of time.
Ramallah Governor Layla Ghannam visit al-Taj (a Palestinian prisoner, who got hard illness was freed from Israeli jail) at the hospital and called on international community to urge Israel to release all Palestinian prisoners, especially those who are sick.
“The international community should intervene to the end of the sufferred Palestinian prisoners who are in 27 Israeli jails, they do not provide adequate health care and it is clear that Israel violated human rights and international law,” said Ghannam. (T/P09/P03)
