31GAZA (PNIC):-Head of the Studies and Documentation Department at the Palestinian Prisoners' Affairs Authority, Abdul-Nasser Farwana, said that over 212 Palestinian prisoners have died in Israeli jails since 1967 including 6 martyrs who died during Jerusalem Intifada (uprising) which broke out on October 01, 2015.

 While marking the second anniversary of the martyrdom of prisoner Fadi al-Derbi who died due to medical negligence, Farwana said that 71 detainees died as a result of torture and 59 due to medical negligence in addition to 7 cases of murder by Israeli gunfire inside jails and 74 others were physically liquidated.

He pointed out that dozens of ex-detainees died shortly after being released from Israeli prisons because of diseases they contracted as a result of torture and medical negligence.

Farwana held the Israeli occupation authorities totally responsible for these murders and appealed to international institutions to urgently take action for bringing Israeli leaders to account and protecting thousands of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli captivity.
