The Prisoners Club said that 226 prisoners passed away in the Israeli occupation prisons from 1967 until 2020.
It added in a statement, on Wednesday, on the eve of the commemoration of Palestinian Martyr's Day, which falls on Thursday, January 7, that among them are 75 prisoners who were killed as a result of premeditated murder, 7 after they were shot directly, and 71 as a result of the policy of medical negligence, "slow killing," which is implemented by the occupation prisons administration, through a set of abusive tools over the years of their detention, most notably the use of their right to treatment as a tool of abuse.
The physical and psychological torture were the most prominent of the systematic policies that led to the rise of 73 prisoners over the past decades, and which have escalated again since the end of 2019.
During the past ten years, 29 prisoners died in the occupation prisons, while the policy of medical negligence constituted a central reason that led to their killing.
Moreover, four prisoners died in the occupation prisons during the last year: Nour al-Din al-Barghouti, Saadi al-Gharabli, Daoud al-Khatib, and Kamal Abu Waer.
The occupation continues to detain the bodies of eight martyrs, the oldest of whom is the prisoner Anis Dawla since 1980, in addition to Aziz Uweissat from Jerusalem, who was martyred in 2018, Faris Baroud, Nasar Taqatqa, and Bassam Al-Sayeh who were martyred in 2019, Saadi Al-Gharabli, Daoud Al-Khatib, and Kamal Abu Waer in 2020.
