RAMALLAH, Sunday, November 14, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli repression units early today morning raided section 13 in the Israeli prison of Nafha, in the Naqab desert, where Palestinian political detainees are incarcerated, and brutally assaulted and humiliated them, according to the Palestinian Authority’s Detainees Affairs Commission.
Hasan Abed Rabbo, a spokesman for the Commission, said Israeli repression forces attacked the rooms of the Palestinian prisoners while the prisoners were inside, beat them up and destroyed and sabotaged their belongings. He said the prisoners, in response, shut down all sections in the prison in a protest measure.
Tensions in the Israeli prisons have remained high since a dramatic breakout on September 6 when six Palestinian freedom fighters tunneled out of Gilboa Prison. The six have been recaptured.
The Israeli occupation authorities are incarcerating more than 4,500 Palestinian and Arab prisoners for resisting the Israeli occupation of their homeland.
In recent years, Palestinian prisoners in Israeli detention have launched multiple strikes to demand better imprisonment conditions, including an end to the unjustified Israeli policy of raiding prisoners' sections.
