Rights Groups Investigate Conditions of Gaza Detainees

A coalition of Israeli human rights organizations is protesting the treatment of Gazans detained during last month's military operation.

The organizations include NIF grantees Public Committee Against Torture in Israel (PCATI), Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI), Adalah: Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel and Yesh Din- Volunteers for Human Rights.

The organizations have written letters to Attorney General Meni Mazuz and Military Judge Advocate General Brig. General Avichai Mandelblit protesting the harsh conditions inflicted on detainees between their capture and transfer to the Israel Prison Service. The organizations demand that such treatment not be repeated in future, and that, wherever they are held, detainees are incarcerated in appropriate conditions.
