Ramallah, ALRAY - The Israeli occupation authorities continues to administratively detain Palestinian mother of two kids Shorouq Mohammad al-Badan, 25 years old from Bethlehem, despite her deteriorated health condition, Commission of Detainees’ Affairs said on Sunday.

The committee pointed out, after the detainee’s lawyer visited her at al-Damon Prison, that she is suffering from severe stomach pain, as she is vomiting blood, noting that she receives no medical attention.

After Israeli forces broke into her house, al-Badan has been detained on June 15, 2019, and held at a solitary cell in Hasharon prison for five days, the committee indicated.

It also pointed out that the cell lacks ventilation and light, as it smells so bad due to the existence of a toilet inside it, which led her to suffering from psychological and health problems.

The commission noted that the Israeli authorities issued a six-month order of administrative detention against detainee al-Badan, and rejected an appeal submitted by the committee’s lawyer against the order.

It’s noteworthy to mention that at least 38 Palestinian female detainees are being held at the Israeli jail of al-Damon, two of them are administratively detained.

Close to 500 Palestinians are currently being held under Israel’s illegal policy of administrative detention, under which prisoners can be held for renewable six-month periods without charge or trial.

According to Palestinian figures, about 5,700 Palestinians, including 38 women and 250 children, are currently languishing in Israeli detention jails.
