The Center for Prisoners’ Studies in Gaza has revealed that Israel security forces has developed more than a hundred mental and physical torture methods designed to elicit confessions from Palestinians during interrogations.Israel uses torture against the prisoners from the moment they are arrested until when they are let free, said CPS director Raafat Hamdouna, condemning Israel’s democracy and human rights claims, and calling on the world community to monitor what is happening and issue indictments against security officers involved in torturing prisoners.
Hamdouna said that everyone who has ever entered Israeli prisons has been subjected to multiple forms of torture. It begins from the time of arrest, when brutality is used to instill fear in the arrestee’s family. The residents of the targeted houses are then usually degraded and assaulted before the subject is taken as prisoner from his home, Hamdouna added.“That is followed by threats of murder, assassination, home demolition, rape or the arrest of wife, then the covering of the head with a dirty sack, sleep deprivation, the use of injuries during interrogation, placing the prisoner inside a refrigerator and standing for long periods,” Hamdouna said, listing many more torture methods.
