Violations continue against Palestinian Women and Girls on International Womenís Day

Since 1967, over 10,000 Palestinian women have been arrested by Israeli forces. Today, 22 Palestinian females are held in occupation prisons and detention centers. Palestinian women and girls are afforded special protections under international humanitarian law due to living under occupation, under special treaties dedicated to the protection of women and girls in times of conflict, and under general human rights law. Testimonies from women arrested in 2013 and 2014 indicate that these arrests persist in ways that gravely impact the rights of women.
Human Rights Defenders in Kufr Qaddum

Kufr Qaddum is a Palestinian village located 16 kilometers west of Nablus in the Occupied West Bank. Israel has seized large swaths of the land of Kufr Qaddum to build illegal Israeli settlements as well as closed the main road to the village, causing residents to travel three times the distance to the nearest city. In 2011, the residents to Kufr Qaddum started weekly demonstrations in protest of the continuous violations and to demand their road be re-opened. They are attacked, beaten, arrested and shot at by the Israeli Occupying Forces.
Fact Sheet: Families and Family Visits

Over 6,000 Palestinian political prisoners are currently being held in Israeli prisons and are often denied their basic human rights. One of the many rights they have been denied is their right to communicate with their families and receive regular visits. Imprisonment causes a huge amount of suffering and hardship, not only for those denied of their liberty, but for their relatives on the outside. Whole families and generations have grown up with no mother or father or brother or sister. The Israeli policy of mass detention and imprisonment has been devastating for Palestinian society, with families of prisoners being the silent victims. Family visits are routinely, and often arbitrarily, restricted or cancelled by the Israeli authorities. Moreover, many Palestinians prisoners from 1948 Territories, the West Bank and Gaza are denied their visitation rights completely. This is in complete contradiction with Israelís responsibility, as the Occupying Power, under international law. The right to family visits is an entrenched right in international law, expressly provided for in the Fourth Geneva Convention, the Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners, the Body of Principles for the Protection of All Persons under Any Form of Detention or Imprisonment, the European Prison Rules, and, in relation to child detainees, the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Update on Hunger Strikes, Force Feeding & Arrest Campaign - June 2014

On 12 June, it was announced that three illegal Israeli settlers disappeared on the roads between Hebron and Bethlehem. Since the announcement, the Israeli government has sanctioned widespread attacks on Palestinians in the form of invasions, mass arrests, killings, home demolitions and new legislation that curbs the rights of Palestinians and prisoners. The following is an analysis by Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association of the collective punishment of the Palestinian people, with a focus on the mass arrest campaign and its implications; the ongoing mass hunger strike; and the proposed force feeding law, which if passed would legalize the torture of Palestinian hunger strikers on an industrial scale.
