Torture in the cellars of the ISA, 2007

May 2007

April 2005, Loay Ashqar was arrested and taken to interrogation by the Israel Security Agency. Shortly after being arrested, a physician at the detention facility examined him and stated that he "has no physical or mental problem." In May 2007, Ashqar was released from prison. In his testimony to B'Tselem, he says that ISA agents tortured him during interrogation, causing him severe disability.

The figures do not include fatalities in the Gaza Strip and Israel during Operation Protective Edge (8 July 2014 through 26 August 2014). These figures will be added once the relevant investigations are complete.
