Gaza25Apr6RAMALLAH (PNIC):-Palestinian minors held in the Israeli Megiddo prison have launched distress signals over the systematic torture and harsh treatment they have been made to endure at the hands of Israel’s suppressive units.

Lawyer Heba Musalha, from the Prisoners’ and Ex-Prisoners’ Commission, quoted the minors as stating that they have been enduring heavy beating and mistreatment by the Nahshon forces during inter-prison transfers.

Signs of aggressive beating figure on the faces and bodies of the minors, said the lawyer.

The minors have frequently appealed to the Israeli prison service to cease such preplanned oppressive polices. However, their pleas have gone unheeded.

The Nahshon suppressive units are Israeli troops involving trained soldiers and tasked with cracking down on Palestinian detainees, particularly during transfers to and back from Israeli courts.

The Nahshon officers often subject the detainees to strip searches and ransack prison sections under the security guise.
