International Committee of the Red Cross at Ansar Detention Center


The Committee to Defend the Rights of Prisoners at Ansar Detention Camp would like to express their appreciation for the humanitarian role played by the ICRC in defending the rights of the prisoners, which has helped alleviate some of the psychological and physical pressures experienced by the prisoners.

In conclusion, the general situation at Ansar detention camp is rapidly deteriorating. We hold the Israeli Government and the ICRC fully responsible for the deteriorating condition of the prisoners. We would like to receive a written answer from the ICRC on the aforementioned.

We uphold our right to take any step we feel necessary to defend our rights as prisoners at Ansar detention camp.

Sincerely yours,
(Signed) Salah TAMARI
