Elite Israeli ‘sniper squad’ raids Palestinians in prison, injures 11


March 14, 2012 - Early Monday morning an elite "control and restraint" unit and a massive number of soldiers raided Palestinians in an Israeli prison with tear gas and rubber bullets, leaving 11 injured. The raid took place just one week after a group of Palestinian women submitted affidavits charging Israeli security officials with torture. The 5 am attack began when 200 soldiers and the Masada, a special forces unit trained in "sniper marksmanship," flooded Israel's Ashkelon prison.

Elite Israeli ‘sniper squad’ raids Palestinians in prison, injures 11

by Allison Deger

March 14, 2012

Early Monday morning an elite "control and restraint" unit and a massive number of soldiers raided Palestinians in an Israeli prison with tear gas and rubber bullets, leaving 11 injured. The raid took place just one week after a group of Palestinian women submitted affidavits charging Israeli security officials with torture.

The 5 am attack began when 200 soldiers and the Masada, a special forces unit trained in "sniper marksmanship," flooded Israel's Ashkelon prison. According to one of the inmates, the prison system’s special forces unit stormed the facility "on the pretext of searching for cell phones and messed up the inmates' holdings forcing them to strip naked during the inspection."

Military raids, and late night attacks on detainees are a common practice in Israeli prisons. Last year, there were a reported 200 instances of special military forces attacking Palestinian prisoners. And a few years ago a prisoner was killed in a raid, also at Ashkelon prison. 

Nisreen El-Shamayleh's 2011 Al Jazeera English report on the 2007 Ashkelon raid. 

In the 2007 prison raid, Mohammed al-Ashkar was killed by a rubber bullet shot at close range. A video documenting the raid was later leaked in 2011. The footage shows the same Masada unit from the latest assault attacking prisoners in close quarters with live ammunition. The video also captures security forces preventing wounded Palestinians from receiving medical attention.  As a result, al-Ashkar died in prison, 50 days before his scheduled release. 

Since 1967, 200 Palestinian prisoners have died in Israeli detention facilities due to torture, abuse, and/or medical neglect.
