PA claim: Over 5000 experiments on Palestinian prisoners per year

Headline: "Cancer is devouring the prisoners, and more than five thousand experiments are being carried out each year on their bodies"
"Abd Al-Nasser Farawneh, specialist researcher on prisoner affairs… said that more than 5000 experiments using dangerous medications are carried out each year on [prisoners'] bodies, putting their lives in danger. … Farawneh stated that the occupation authorities have not satisfied [themselves] with prisons and detention camps lacking any human conditions… but have gone beyond this and have carried out something more grave and terrible: they have subjected – and continue to subject – the bodies of prisoners to medical experiments with a number of dangerous medications, with the approval of the [Israeli] Ministry of Health."
