The Palestinian Detainees’ Committee has reported, Wednesday, that the Israeli authorities continue to force a detainee under solitary confinement for the 130th consecutive day, under extremely bad conditions.

The Committee stated that the detainee, Mohammad Omar Kharwat, was forced into solitary confinement instantly after he was moved from Ramon prison to Ayalon-Ramla prison at the end of March.

The detainee, from the southern West Bank city of Hebron, was taken prisoner in the year 2002, and was sentenced to four life terms.

The Committee stated that Israel’s policy of solitary confinement is one of the most severe measures against the detainees, especially since they are forced into these tiny, dirty and dark cells, largely filled with bugs, cockroaches, and insects, for extended periods, which causes various health complications to the detainees.

It added that Israel has escalated the use of solitary confinement against the detainee over the past several years, to humiliate the detainees, in addition to causing them physical and psychological harm.
