Throughout this month, recent events have highlighted the extreme violence employed by Israeli Occupation Forces against Palestinian prisoners. In light of the recent raid in Ofer Prison and closing of investigations in the previous Naqab Prison raid, Addameer chose to commemorate the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture (June 26th) by publishing a paper analyzing IOF raids on Palestinian prisoners as an underexamined, yet blatant case of torture. The persistent ill-treatment, lack of accountability, and arbitrary detention orders led a number of Palestinian political prisoners to resort to open hunger strikes in protest of ill-treatment and arbitrary administrative detention.
