Over 120 internationals attempting to visit Palestine are still being illegally detained — kidnapped — in two Israeli detention centers,
in Ramle and in Beer Al-Saba’ (Beersheva).

among which there are minors and elderly persons with medical conditions,
have been and are being mistreated and subjected to unnecessary brutality.
