Farwana: 207 Palestinian prisoners died or killed since 1967
A Palestinian official has accused Israel of killing 207 Palestinian prisoners and detainees directly or indirectly since 1967.
Senior official of the commission of detainees’ affairs Abdul-Naser Farwana stated on Sunday that seven of those victims had been shot dead directly by Israeli soldiers or officers in prisons.
Another 126 prisoners died as a result of torture or medical neglect in prisons or after their release and 74 others were killed immediately after or during their detention, Farwana added.
The official also noted that dozens of wounded Palestinians were cold-bloodedly killed by Israeli security and military forces during the current intifada.
