The Israeli popular committee against torture has issued a reported proving that Israeli interrogators use methods against Palestinian political prisoners that contradict with the third Geneva agreement regarding the treatment of prisoners.
The reported stated that Israeli interrogators use methods such as physical torture and not allowing the prisoners to sleep for several days.
The Palestinian minister of information Dr. Mustafa Al Barghouthi stated on Thursday that this report exposes the Israeli government and its brutal policy of dealing with Palestinian political prisoners.
Al Barghouthi added that Israel does not respect international law and attempts to evade any implementation of the forth Geneva Convention, arguing that this law does not apply to Palestinian areas. This policy has continued in spite of several international resolutions calling Israel to reverse this trend.
The Palestinian minister said he is committed to making this issue his number one priority.
