A study detailing shocking testimony and facts from the "Gift of Dignity"

An analysis highlighting alarming information and testimonies from the “Gift of Dignity”

Today, on Wednesday, the “Adalah” human rights center in the occupied Palestinian territory published an extensive report titled “Two Years since the Gift of Dignity” in which it examined the statistics and factual data and recorded the testimonies of numerous young men and detainees about what happened during the Gift of Dignity in May 2021.

Additionally, the report describes the horrifying attacks and rights abuses they suffered at the hands of settlers and occupation police.

Adalah notes a significant discrepancy between the statistics and the official estimates released by other authorities, nevertheless. The occupation police report that there were 2142 detainees throughout the campaign in their report on it, which was released on June 3, 2021.

While the so-called “State Comptroller”‘s report on the Occupation police’s activities during the uprising of dignity in the mixed cities shows a significant discrepancy between the number of detainees reported by the occupation police’s Investigation Unit and those reported by the department responsible for research and statistics therein, the first mentions the presence of roughly 3,200 detainees both during the uprising and during the “law and order” campaign.

Despite the numerous complaints made by the Adalah Centre for incitement and threatening leaflets, as well as attacks planned by settlers, there were 1,671 Palestinian detainees among the 1,845 detainees listed by the occupation police in its response to the freedom of information request, as opposed to only 171 Jewish detainees. Palestinians in large numbers in coastal cities.

In addition to the 1551 adult detainees, the figures indicate that there are 291 minor detainees who are under the age of 18; this means that 91% of the inmates are Arab, and more than 15% of the detainees are minors.

The occupation prosecution formed another arm to tighten its hold on the Palestinians, treating them as the “enemy from within” who opened a second front against it, according to its description, as it waged war with the “enemy from without,” it becomes clear when looking deeper into the articles of the indictments themselves.

The Israeli prosecution added an introduction at the start of each of the indictments presented as part of the contribution, the center claims, in order to place the events in a larger perspective and give the indictments a security as well as a criminal meaning.

The report also included inmate accounts concerning abuse and torture they experienced both inside and outside of occupation police stations, including those of lawyers who were attacked, bystanders, and protesters.

According to the accounts, some of the inmates arrived at the occupation police station with bloody bodily injuries, while other captives were abused there.

One of them testified: “The occupation police officers tied me with the same handcuffs as another detainee, a detainee from the right side and another from the left side. They ordered us to sit on our knees, our faces towards the walls and our heads down.

They claimed, “They began aggressively striking us with their feet and batons. In the midst of police yells to not raise his head, I witnessed one of the detainees’ blood streaming on the ground as he was struck in the head and another area of his face is covered in blood.

The report confirms that Israel’s apartheid policy in the application of the law, which was manifested on the one hand by applying a policy of control over the Palestinians through repression and intimidation, and on the other hand by providing legal immunity to settlers and elements of the law, has been reiterated by the policies adopted by the occupation authorities, including the Public Prosecution Office. employment police.

The report confirms that Israeli practices during the Gift of Dignity were not isolated from the broader Israeli legal and political context based on the system of dominance and ethnic supremacy, and they also established additional repressive practices that became institutionalized in the months that followed the events.

One of these practices is the use of crime and “crime-fighting schemes” in Palestinian society to give the occupation police more authority to oppress and violate the rights of Palestinian inhabitants.
