The Ministry of foreign affairs and expatriates saluted thousands of Palestinian detainees who have been and are still held arbitrarily and illegally in the Israel detention dungeons.
The Ministry of foreign affairs retaliates the centrality of the Palestinian detainees cause and reaffirms that their freedom is a fundamental part of the freedom of the Palestinian people. Over the past five decades Israel, the occupying power has detained over eight hundred thousand Palestinias including children and women , currently Israel illegally detains four thousand eight hundred including twenty nine females and hundred and seventy children . More over 967 Palestinians are currently detained under the Israel illegal policy administrative detention.
Successive Israel occupation government have implemented discriminatory policies against Palestinian detainees. The current racist Israel occupation government have intensified the abhorrent policies .
They approved a draft law authorizing the execution of Palestinian detainees, approved a discriminatory legislation deporting Palestinian detainees from their land and introducing a draft law depriving detainees of medical treatment are only samples of discriminatory policies.
“The Israel occupation detention system is a main part of its collection of colonial tools to intimidate and percecute the Palestinian people to serve different objectives including enabling forcible transfer, mass displacement, land confiscation and annexation ” said Ambassador Tamer Almassri.
“Israel judicial system is part of the colonial regime that legitimizes discrimination, torture and percecution of Palestinian people,” added Ambassador Almassri.
Therefore the ministry of foreign affairs is calling the International community including HCPS to the GCIV to uphold their legal responsibilities towards Palestinian detainees by ending arbitrary detention without fair trial or any legal basis for the deprivation of liberty.
