Jenin / Ali Samoudi – The tradition sweets that are a part of Eid al-Fitr celebrations were banned in several Israeli prisons.
Palestinian political prisoners in Jalema, Salem and Huwara detention camps were not allowed Eid sweets despite efforts by the International Committee of Palestinian Prisoners.
Efforts were in vain for the delivery of a shipment of materials and sweets for Eid for Palestinians, which is part of a series of events that the prisoners’ organization says show a “complete disregard of all international norms and laws.”
The International Committee of Palestinian Prisoners said today that the occupying Israeli administration engages in violations of the basic rights of prisoners living under difficult circumstances.
The committee called on all pertinent organizations to put pressure on the Israeli authorities to rescind these types of decisions.
