Mapping Israeli prisons

12:00 Sep 17 2016 Al-Maskobiyya (Russian Compound), Ayalon, Eshil, Gilbo'a, Jalameh (al-Jalama), Hadarim, Ktzi'ot, Massiyahu, Ofer, Shikma, Shita (Shata)

Map of Israeli prisons in Israel and the Occupied Palestinians Territories (0PT): a partial list, in progress.

International law governing the actions of an occupying power prohibits that power from holding detainees in locations outside occupied territories.

While a few Israeli prisons, such as Ofer Prison, are within the Occupied Palestinian Territories (oPT), many Palestinians, including children under the age of 16, are incarcerated in prisons within Israel. Palestinian and Israeli news media also report that Palestinian detainees, including children, are taken for interrogation at centers located within Israeli settlements in the oPT, settlements that are themselves illegal under international law.
