PNC calls for international intervention and urgent protection for prisoners in Israeli occupation prisons

Palestine National Council (PNC) called on all international institutions, particularly the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), to intervene urgently to stop the frenzy attack against the prisoners and detainees in the prisons of the Israeli occupation, and to provide them with urgent protection, as guaranteed by international law.
In a statement issued today, Thursday, PNC said that the Israeli occupation authorities have escalated their violations, incursions, repression and abuse against Palestinian prisoners and detainees, and imposed collective punishments against them, within a framework of systematic and escalating policy of revenge which blessed by the highest political and security levels in Israel, the occupying state. This is a clear crime targeting all prisoners and detainees protected under the relevant Geneva Conventions.
The Israeli occupation authorities seek to single out the prisoners, and practice the worst methods of repression, collective and individual isolation, and physical assault by terror corps armed with all kinds of
weapons and police dogs, PNC added, and supported by large numbers of the occupation soldiers, that warns of widespread and serious violations and attacks against the prisoners. These crimes amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity for which international law is held accountable.
In its statement, PNC said, it is time to implement the Geneva Conventions related to Palestinian prisoners and detainees. Regional and international human rights and human rights institutions, and parliaments of the world have to bear their full responsibilities towards the Palestinian defenseless prisoners, and to mobilize urgently to put an end to the Israeli oppression and disregard for the lives of
about (4,600) prisoners, including (200) children, (38) female prisoners, and hundreds of sick and elderly people, distributed in (23) prisons, detention and investigation centers

It sets PLO policies and plans to achieve the goals of the Palestinian people for self-determination, the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital and the return of refugees to their homes.After Al-Nakba (catastrophe) of 1948, the Arab Higher Committee for Palestine, headed by Haj Amin Al-Husseini, decided to call for the convening of a Palestine National Council which met in Gaza in 1October 1948, which was the first Palestinian legislative authority to be established in the Arab state of Palestine.
