The entity issued a statement specifying that 13 of them are mothers, and warned that several suffer serious health problems.

In this regard, it cited the case of Israa al-Jaabis, 36, who was arrested on October 11th, 2015 and sentenced to 11 years for a crime she did not commit.

The Commission reported that the Israeli military opened fire on the car he was driving, estimating that she was planning a suicide attack, setting the vehicle on fire, causing first, second and third-degree burns that affected more than 60 percent of her body, including her face, forcing several of her fingers to be amputated.

The prisoner is in desperate need of specialized care, but her suffering is compounded by the continued Israeli refusal to provide her with medical care, the Commission criticized.

At the end of last year the women held in Damon began a protest against the abuses committed by their jailers.

In response, the latter beat numerous prisoners and imposed various repressive measures such as cutting off electricity and releasing tear gas inside the cells, according to Palestinian sources.
