Palestinian Prisoner Mujahid Mabrouka Speaks Out on Medical Neglect and Harsh Conditions in Israeli Prisons

Mujahid Mabrouka, a Palestinian prisoner from Nablus, has spoken out about the medical neglect and harsh conditions he and other prisoners face in Israeli occupation prisons. Mabrouka, whose mother died during one of his arrests, highlighted the suffering endured by Palestinian detainees.

The recent death of another Palestinian prisoner, Walid Daqqah, has brought renewed attention to the Israeli prison policy of medical negligence. The number of sick and wounded prisoners is increasing due to ongoing abuse, torture, and starvation in Israeli prisons.

Why this matters: The plight of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli occupation prisons raises serious concerns about human rights violations and the need for international intervention. The medical neglect and harsh conditions faced by detainees have far-reaching consequences for their physical and mental well-being, as well as the broader Palestinian community.

Far-right Israeli national security minister Ben Gvir has called for the execution of Palestinian prisoners to ease overcrowding, further intensifying tensions and fears among detainees and their families.

The number of Palestinians detained by Israeli forces has risen sharply, with over 8,455 detained since October 7th, 2023. The arrests have occurred across the West Bank, including in Tulkarm, Ramallah, Hebron, and Jerusalem governorates. Israeli occupation forces have carried out widespread raids, abuse, and attacks against detainees and their families, as well as the destruction of citizens' homes.

Mabrouka's testimony illuminates the dire situation faced by Palestinian prisoners in Israeli occupation prisons. The medical neglect, harsh conditions, and increasing number of detainees emphasize the urgent need for international attention and action to address the human rights violations occurring within these facilities.
