Harun Mansur Nasruddin, a Palestinian ex-prisoner who was freed as part of the prisoner swap deal between Hamas and Israel, has said that there was no difference between Israel prisons and Abu Gharib or prisons in Guantanamo.
Speaking to AA correspondent on Tuesday, Nusruddin who was sent to Turkey after freed by Israel, said that it was extremely hard being kept as prisoner in his country by another state.
Nasruddin who spent 20 years in Israeli prisons stated that he was arrested while fighting against Israel army decades ago.
"I started fighting against them in my childhood days. Later on in my life, I joined bit by bit the armed resistance," said Nasruddin.
Stating that Hamas was fighting to make free all women and more than thousand captives during prisoner swap agreement days, "During those days Israel had difficulties with their domestic affairs. The Netanyahu government was struggling with riots in their community. Hamas had taken advantage of this situation and got what they demanded," said Nasruddin.
Nasruddin said that there were now around 5,000 Palestinian prisoners in Israel's prisons.
Criticising those prisons, "There is no difference between Israel prisons and Abu Ghraib or prisons in Guantanamo. The only difference is that what is happening at Israel's prisons cannot be framed. Some nights they were insultingly carrying out a search and our families were being searched naked when they come to visit us," Nasruddin said.
