Located in the middle of Jerusalem near the Old City as part of the so-called “Russian Compound,” this site was founded during the British Mandate and was then known as the central prison. Moscobiyeh is now used as a center to interrogate Palestinian detainees and prisoners from a variety of age groups. At once, it came to be known as “the slaughterhouse” due to the use of harsh torture techniques by authorities in the prison, especially throughout the 80s.
