Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - July 7, 2010

 
Headline: “Ministry of Prisoners’ Affairs: The Israeli security services use torture, officially and as anchored in [its] law”
     “When the prisoner reaches the interrogation room, the occupation forces use barbaric methods against him. He is tortured with the most despicable means: struck on his arms and legs, struck with plastic clubs on his body, his head and his sexual organ, and with the belts worn by the interrogators… The prisoners are subjected to burns and scorching with the butts of cigarettes, and are struck with electrical wires... If one of them happens to close his eyes, he is struck on his face or has his ear poked with a toothpick… The torture is not only physical; there is also mental torture.”
