Allegations that Israeli prison guards were left vulnerable to sexual assault by suspected terrorists for the purpose of gaining leverage and coaxing confessions were rekindled by a prison commander.

The commander said the prison bosses had “Pimp soldiers” and “Handed over female soldiers to terrorists for sexual purposes”.



“The pimping incident was a massive incident”, he added.

The alleged “procuring” of female soldiers in order to obtain information from prisoners occurred before Ben Shitrit became head of the prison. The commander was speaking to a government committee about the failures that led to the escape of six Palestinian prisoners from Gilboa prison earlier this year.

Channel 20 shed light on the allegations in 2018. At least three female soldiers were reportedly victims of the abuse.
