140 Palestinian inmates contract COVID-19 in Israel jails

Palestine (In Palestine Today) – A total of 140 Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli detention have contracted COVID-19 since the outbreak of the pandemic in early March this year, today said Hasan Abed Rabbo, a spokesman of the Detainees and Ex-Detainees Commission.

Abed Rabbo told official Voice of Palestine radio that the international community should bear a moral responsibility under the Fourth Geneva Convention to pressure the Israeli occupation to ensure the health wellbeing and safety of the Palestinian prisoners.

He demanded all the concerned human rights organizations to intervene to save the lives of the prisoners at this particular hard time.
