PNC Calls for an International Investigation into the Crimes of the Israeli Occupation

PNC called on international human rights and humanitarian organizations to open an international investigation into the crimes of the Israeli occupation against Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons, especially the crimes of deliberate medical negligence against prisoners, which ultimately lead to their killing.

PNC said in a press statement issued by its Speaker Mr. Saleem Al-Za’anoon this morning, that the death of the prisoner Sami Abu Diak (37 years) today, who was suffering from cancer, in the prisons of the occupation, , is a new crime against the Palestinian prisoners, and must hold the Israeli occupation leaders accountable for.

PNC called for implementing international and humanitarian conventions related to the protection of Palestinian prisoners, who are about six thousand prisoners. PNC calls for treating them as prisoners of war.

It’s noteworthy that with the death of Abu Diak, the number of martyrs of the captive national movement since 1967, reached (222) martyrs, including (67) prisoners killed through the policy of deliberate medical negligence.
