The colonial machine of oppression, represented by Israel Prison Service (IPS), has a long history of abusing Palestinian prisoners in its various prisons and detention centers. October 7 was not the date of change in the policies implemented inside Israeli prisons, but rather such abuses constitute the reality that Palestinian prisoners have been experiencing for many years, and the year 2023 marked a turning point in the history of the prisoners’ movement. However, this does not negate the present situation of prisoners after October 7, which witnessed an escalation in the systematic policies of torture and abuse that have become a consistent approach in the prison structure.


This part of the report focuses on the data and reality of the detention conditions of Palestinians during arrests and the violations practiced against them by the Israeli occupation forces, as well as the reality of conditions in Israeli prisons since the beginning of 2023, and the general data after October 7. This section highlights the prison conditions and the reality of the Palestinian prisoners and crimes that have continued since the beginning of the year and reached their peak after October 7.
