Israel expands attacks on refugee camps, tortures detainees


Israeli army forces continued their operations in the central and eastern parts of the Gaza Strip. It said it had begun “operational activity” in two areas of central Gaza as part of a possible expansion of its months-long ground offensive against Hamas. The army launched a weeks-long offensive earlier this year in Bureij and several other refugee camps near the center. Gaza.

Separately, UN agencies have warned that more than a million Palestinians in the Gaza Strip could face the highest level of life-threatening famine by the middle of next month if hostilities continue.

On the other hand, Israel says it is reforming the operation of the mysterious “Sde Timan” military prison, used to hold Palestinian detainees after protests over conditions at the facility sparked concerns about rights violations of man.

Prison system

Sde Teman prison served as the main place of detention for thousands of detainees arrested by Israel in Gaza during the eight-month offensive. State lawyers told the Supreme Court hearing that next week the government would transfer 500 of the 700 detainees currently held to the Ofer military prison in the occupied West Bank. They pledged to transfer the remaining 200 people later and use the prison only as a short-term detention center.

State attorneys also said the facility’s medical center would be improved and eventually replaced with a new hospital.

Human rights groups had asked the Supreme Court to close the facility, citing poor conditions and a lack of supervision.

Israel claims to have arrested around 4,000 Palestinians during its attack on Gaza, saying the arrests are necessary to gather intelligence. He released 1,500 of them after determining that they were not affiliated with Palestinian armed groups.

Dates and brief

The army said its forces were operating “above and underground” in the eastern parts of Deir al-Balah and Bureij, a Palestinian refugee camp dating from the 1948 war that followed Israel’s creation. She added that the operation began with airstrikes on militants’ infrastructure, after which the forces launched a “targeted operation in broad daylight” in the two areas.

The eight-month offensive has disrupted the supply of food, medicine and other supplies to Palestinians facing widespread hunger. International mediators are awaiting the response from Israel and Hamas to the new ceasefire proposal and the release of the hostages. Near famine

The World Food Program and the Food and Agriculture Organization said in a joint report that hunger is exacerbated by severe restrictions on humanitarian access and the collapse of the local food system due to war. has been going on for eight months between Israel and Hamas.

The situation remains bad in northern Gaza, besieged and largely isolated by Israeli forces for months.

Meanwhile, the Israeli incursion into Rafah has significantly disrupted humanitarian operations in the south. Egypt has refused to open the Rafah crossing with Gaza since Israeli forces took control of the Gaza side about a month ago, and instead diverted aid to the nearby Israeli Kerem Shalom crossing.

The Israeli military says it has allowed hundreds of trucks to enter through the Kerem Shalom crossing in recent weeks, but the United Nations says it is often unable to collect aid due to the security situation. It says distribution inside Gaza also faces serious obstacles due to ongoing fighting, the breakdown of law and order and other Israeli restrictions.

The Integrated Food Security Classification, the global body responsible for determining the extent of food crises, said in March that around 677,000 people in Gaza were suffering from stage 5 hunger, the highest level and equivalent to starvation.

The two U.N. agencies said in their report that the number could rise to more than 1 million – almost half of Gaza’s total population of 2.3 million – by the middle of the month next.

Jerusalem March

Thousands of Israelis, including large crowds of ultranationalists, are expected to take part in an annual march through densely populated Palestinian neighborhoods in Jerusalem’s Old City, an event that often witnesses racist chants and fights.

Jerusalem, the epicenter of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, has been mostly calm throughout the war between Israel and Hamas, but Wednesday’s march could spark widespread tensions.

Israel considers all of Jerusalem its capital, but its annexation of East Jerusalem is not internationally recognized. The Palestinians, who want East Jerusalem to be the capital of their future state, view the march as a provocation.

In recent years, police have forcibly removed Palestinians from the parade route, and large crowds of mostly ultranationalist youth chanted “Death to the Arabs” and “Your village is burning.” Police say they are deploying 3,000 security officers to ensure calm.

Sde Timan Prison:

The mysterious military prison housed Palestinian detainees arrested by Israel in Gaza during the eight-month offensive.

Detainees are held there pretrial without access to a lawyer for more than a month, as part of a wartime overhaul of Israeli law.

Human rights groups said detainees were shackled and blindfolded in pens inside warehouse-like buildings under intense spotlights.

Doctors working at the medical facility have raised concerns that patients are treated handcuffed and blindfolded and that detainees are operated on without adequate painkillers.
