British-Danish security firm G4S has been severely criticized for its operations in the occupied Palestinian territories and in prisons and detention centers in Israel, including those housing children and “administrative detainees” held without charge or trial.

Meanwhile, about 2,000 Palestinian prisoners bellow out their ill-treatment in a mass hunger strike.
