Also, Prison Administration repeatedly imposed high fines on the detainees without any proper reason or explanation.
On Tuesday, a committee formed by the parents of the detainees in Nablus area released a statement which revealed the bad treatment and abuse practiced by the soldiers against the families while visiting their detained family members.
The committee reported that soldiers are forcing the women to remove their veils and and dresses while searching them. This act is a direct violation to the principles of human rights and a violation to the Islamic culture tradition.
