Torture and Intimidation in the West Bank: The Case of al-Fara'a Prison

This report addresses the condition of detainees and prisoners as well as the policy of intimidation to which those held at al-Fara'a Prison are subjected. Al-Fara'a, located approximately 20 kilometres northeast of the West Bank town of Nablus, was originally built by the British as an army camp, a purpose which it also served under Jordanian rule. Israeli authorities did not use it as a detention centre until 1982, at which time the army began using it. Affidavits obtained from detainees strongly suggest that its main purpose was to facilitate the policy of torture.
