According to Jo24, Ramzi Al-Abbas, a social media activist, stated to journalists upon his arrival at his home in Silwan after 8 months of detention that he left behind prisoners in a "mournful state."

He added, "There are beating sessions in the morning, afternoon, and evening, beatings all over the body in an unimaginable way, especially in the Negev prison, a graveyard for the living."

He continued, noting that of the 3,000 prisoners in the Negev prison, "some of them had their legs, arms, or heads broken (deep wounds), are in a mental, physical, and moral state that is lamentable."

"There is sexual harassment of detainees that amounts to rape without exaggeration, 24-hour insults, tearing of the Quran, and urination on it," he added.

Al-Abbas stated, "They deprived us of food, one meal a day, long days when we slept uncovered in half-sleeve clothes, they took everything from us, even the covers, and confiscated the windows to make the atmosphere colder, so we slept holding onto each other."

He said, "Drinking water arrives for only one hour, no shampoo or soap, they took off all our clothes, I have been wearing this blouse (underwear) for 60 days, they deprived us of everything."

He conveyed a message from the prisoners urging lawyers to visit all detainees, stating, "The situation is very bad, it is a message and an obligation for lawyers to visit all prisoners, a message and a trust for lawyers to visit the prisons."

Since the eruption of the Aqsa Flood battle and the start of the aggression on Gaza on October 7 until Wednesday, 3,325 arrests have been recorded, according to the Palestinian Prisoners Affairs Commission and the Palestinian Prisoners Club. The number of prisoners in jails before that was estimated at around 5,500 male and female prisoners.
