RAMALLAH, Saturday, January 30, 2021 (WAFA) – At least 200 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails got infected with the coronavirus disease since the start of the year, today said an official with the Palestinian Detainees and Ex-detainees’ Commission.

Hasan Abed Rabbo told the official Voice of Palestine radio that the overall positive corona cases among the Palestinian prisoners in Israel have reached 340, mainly in Rimon and the Naqab prisons.

He said five of the infected prisoners were admitted to hospitals due to deterioration in their health as a result of the virus.

Families of the prisoners are concerned about their sons, said Abed Rabbo, particularly since they are unable to visit them due to the corona restrictions.
