Victims of Torture, 2010

June 2010

David Senesh, an Israeli soldier who was held hostage by the Egyptian army, and Amjad Abu Salhah, a Palestinian who was arrested by Israel, describe the methods of torture to which they were subjected and their long-lasting influence. B'Tselem and the Public Committee Against Torture in Israel present this video to mark June 26, the UN International Day in Support of Victims of Torture.

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.
