Marking Palestinian Prisoners Day, the Palestinian Central Census Bureau and the Palestinian Ministry of Detainees issued a joint release revealing that 201 Palestinians have died in Israeli prisons since 1967 due to torture, medical negligence, and by use of live ammunition. More than a third of this number have died in Israeli prisons since late 2000. 4,700 Palestinians are currently held in Israeli prisons.
The statement revealed that the year 2007 marked the highest rate of detainees mortality as seven detainees died due to lack of medical attention and treatment, adding that 125 detainees died in Israeli prisons in the period between 1967 and 28 September 2000, the day the second Intifada started.
