Russian report claims Israel injecting Arab prisoners with ‘dangerous viruses’

A Russian daily has published an article that is going viral on the Internet Monday, accusing Israel of injecting Arab prisoners with “dangerous viruses,” which lead to death.

The online edition of Pravda reported Friday that Israeli authorities inject prisoners with viruses prior to their release, which cause “bladder cancer and liver disorders.”

“Most former inmates die after being released from Israeli jails,” the Russian daily alleges.

The paper maintains that the practice has been “brought to light” by Rania Saqa, an Arab prisoner recently released from Israeli detention and very strong accusations towards the care of these prisoners.

“A suspiciously large number of Palestinian prisoners are suffering from incurable diseases or permanent disabilities as a result of the critical situation in prisons that they suffer at the hands of Israeli regime.”

“International human rights obligations towards all Palestinian detainees and prisoners under Israeli custody must be fully respected,” United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s spokesperson said in a statement that also underlined the importance of full adherence by all sides to previous agreement on the issue, including the implementation of prisoners’ family visitation rights.

Israel continues to assert that these articles are published in Arab and global media an effort to demonize the Jewish state in the eyes of the international community and lend credibility to enemies who seek its destruction.
