Report: Two Thirds of Palestinian Prisoners are Workers
GAZA, May 1, 2012 (WAFA) – Around two thirds of the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails are workers, according to a report published on Tuesday. Abdul Nasser Ferwaneh, a researcher specialized in prisoners’ affairs, said in a report marking International Labor Day that more than half of the Israeli arrests of Palestinians since 1967 targeted workers. Israeli forces did not only arrest workers who were directly involved in the struggle against the Israeli occupation, but detained thousands of workers on the way to their jobs, under the pretext of not having a permit to enter and work in Israel, added Ferwaneh. He noted that the arrests aimed to pressure and extort workers to collaborate with the Israeli army in exchange of issuing working permits. Thousands of ex-detainee workers in the Gaza Strip are now unemployed due to the difficult economic conditions in Gaza and suffer from health problems due to years of imprisonment, added the report. It urged financial support for the ex-detainee workers.
