Related FileSecurity cameras documented the attack on 55 shackled Palestinian prisoners linked to Hamas resistance movement. The assault was reportedly carried out on March 24, 2019.
The footage, published by the ‘Israeli’ daily newspaper Haaretz, showed several Zionist guards throwing prisoners, one by one, to the floor, while swarming around them, kicking, punching and beating them with batons.
Haaretz said that Palestinian prisoners’ hands were tied behind their backs, and they were commanded not to move or speak, and left tied on the ground for hours in a yard opposite a row of prisoners’ tents.
At least 10 Zionist jailers were seen assaulting the Palestinian prisoners.
An official at the ‘Israel’ Prison Service, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the ‘Israeli’ daily that it was “one of the most violent incidents in ‘Israeli’ prisons”.
Haaretz said ‘Israeli’ prison officials claim the incident was prompted by the stabbing of two jailers.
