  • Amnesty International: Palestinian Woman Tortured in PA Prison
    The Palestinian authorities must urgently investigate the torture and other ill-treatment of Suha Jbara, an activist who has told Amnesty International that she was beaten, slammed against a wall and threatened with sexual violence by her interrogators at the Palestinian Authority’s Jericho Interrogation and Detention Center. Jbara is a Palestinian, U.S. and Panamanian citizen and social justice activist. Palestinian forces in the West Bank and Gaza have a track record of arbitrarily arresting peaceful activists, demonstrators and critics.
    Amnesty International is calling on international donors to the Palestinian security sector to review their assistance to Palestinian forces to ensure that it is not facilitating human rights violations. (Amnesty International)
