Israeli torture of Palestinian women probedThe Public Committee Against Torture In Israel submitted affidavits by Palestinian women to Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein on Monday describing their treatment during interrogation by the Shin Bet security service.

The watchdog group asked Weinstein to direct interrogators to maintain the women's dignity during questioning.

Nine individual complaints were sent to the division of the Justice Ministry that investigates the police, and eight complaints were filed with the Military Advocate General.

The affidavits, which were collected from the women over the past few months by the Public Committee Against Torture, describe instances over the past three years in which women undergoing interrogation were humiliated, threatened or goaded based on gender, religion and culture.
