Water being denied Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails

Aug. 3, 2008 3:13 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 3, 2008 3:13 P.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - Stories of inhuman treatment emerge from Meggido, Shata and Nafha prisons.

A lawyer from the Palestinian Prisoners' Association, who for safety resons will remain unidendified, visited three Israeli prisons and reveald water is being witheld from prisoners within the institutions.

Prisoners told the lawyer that the administration uses water supply as a way of torturing them. They said that the water is cut off for ten hours at a time. Guards, they say, claim that the action is due to a water shortage in Israel.

Last friday, the prisoners reported that the water was turned on for two hours only, during which each prisoner was alowed to wash for prayers for two minutes.

Prisoners added that they protested last week but soldiers let dogs into prisons to halt their actions and put a number into solitary confinement.
