The General Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) expressed deep concern over the conditions of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli occupation prisons, following reports that some of them are infected with coronavirus, bear the brunt of continuing Israeli arbitrary measures and are deprived of their basic rights, including the right to medical treatment. It affirms that the Israeli occupation Government is responsible for the lives of thousands of Palestinian prisoners.

The General Secretariat called on all concerned international parties, especially the United Nations and the International Red Cross to pressure the Israeli occupation government in order to release all sick prisoners, the elderly, children, women and administrative detainees, ensure human rights protection for all Palestinian prisoners and end the continuing violations against them.
