Palestinians in Megiddo prison say not shielded from rain

Dec. 20, 2009 7:15 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 22, 2009 9:34 A.M.)
Gaza – Ma’an – Prisoners in Israel’s Megiddo detention center are reporting that their living situation is awful, the Hussam prisoners organization said on Sunday.

The group said it had been contacted by Palestinians held in the facility saying that wind and rainwater has been coming into their cells through cracks in the walls. They also reported that they were not provided with winter clothing, and that their drinking water was contaminated.

The Israeli prison administration has banned Palestinian families from giving clothes to the inmates in Megiddo, the organization added.

Three prisoners are suffering from kidney diseases, and the prison’s clinic lacks the appropriate equipment and supplies to treat them.

The prison’s yard, they report, is only large enough for seven people to stand in during designated times.

There are more than 10,000 Palestinians in Israel’s prisons.
