On Friday, the Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs and the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) announced that another Palestinian detainee died in Israeli prison.

The detainee, a resident of Gaza, is the tenth Palestinian prisoner to die in Israeli prisons since the beginning of the Israeli military onslaught against the Gaza Strip, on October 7, 2023.

The groups announced the death of the Gaza citizen, Izz al-Din Ziad Abd Al-Banna, 40, while he was in the Ramla Prison Clinic in central Israel.

Prisoners at the Ramla prison told a lawyer on Thursday that the deceased detainee was disabled and suffered various diseases prior to his abduction.

They added that the young man had been transferred to Ramla prison one month ago, and suffered from severe various ulcers.

The prisoners told the lawyer that Al-Banna had died on Tuesday, February 20, 2024, and that the Israeli Prison administration did not officially announce his death until Thursday.

The two organizations, in a statement, said that the escalation in the number of Palestinian detainees who have died in Israeli prisons as a result of torture and medical crimes, “constitutes a clear decision to kill prisoners and detainees in the context of the ongoing genocide in Gaza.”

They added that the detainee was abducted two months ago from his home in Gaza and was subjected to torture which aggravated his health condition.
