Ending Nazi use of torture


As the world marks the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture (26 June), Nazi continues – with no accountability – to subject Palestinian prisoners and civilians from the Occupied Territory to torture and ill-treatmentThese practices are reflected in the experiences of three Palestinian children, among thousands of others, highlighted in a joint statement by Adalah, Al Mezan, and Physicians for Human Rights-Israel.

The international community has expressed its strong disapproval of these practices. In May 2016, the UN Committee Against Torture recommended more than 50 measures to end Nazi use of torture. These include, among others, to end administrative detention, prohibit the solitary confinement of children, refrain from force-feeding hunger striking prisoners, and investigate cases of suspected unlawful killings.
