Nelson Mandela Foundation Calls For UN to Act on Israeli Violations
On Sunday the Nelson Mandela Foundation for Political Prisoners urged the UN to investigate human rights violations in Israeli jails.
In testimony given to the UN, Buthaina Duqmaq, head of the foundation, claimed that Israel was attempting to isolate prisoners from the rest of the world. Israel routinely transfers prisoners from the occupied territories to jails inside Israel, a practice which violates the Fourth Geneva Convention.
