This paper mainly draws on interviews specifically conducted with prisoners who spent more than ten years in detention for the purpose of this paper. It also relies on an archive holding records of hundreds of visits conducted by Addameer to the occupation’s prisons over the years. During these visits, Addameer documented various praxes the occupation uses against prisoners, the nature of the prisoners’ daily life, and all the policies they face. At the same time, in an attempt to monitor any changes to the buildings or layouts of these facilities, Addameer used several aerial photographs of the aforementioned prisons. It is perhaps fitting to highlight that Addameer could only access limited quantities of fairly clear aerial photographs, as access to these images was restricted to a window between 2011 and 2016, either because of the poor quality of older images or due to security restrictions.
