RAMALLAH, Sunday, February 06, 2022 (WAFA) – Representatives of the Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli detention declared today the state of general mobilization in protest of a new series of reprisal measures by the Israel Prison Service (IPS), the Palestinian Authority’s Detainees Affairs Commission said in a statement.
The Commission said the decision of the Palestinian prisoners was made after IPS went back on understandings that had been previously reached with prisoners’ representatives in late September 2021.
“In response to this, the Palestinian prisoner movement of all its spectra declared the state of general mobilization, including the dissolution of all partisan bodies starting tomorrow Monday,” said the Commission.
Meanwhile, Palestinian prisoners at the Israeli prisons of Rimon and Nafha have decided to lock down all of the sections of the two prisons in protest of an IPS decision reducing the daily break-time by 50 percent, the Palestinian Prisoner's Society (PPS) said in a press statement.
PPS said as a result of the IPS decision, prisoners at certain sections have been unable to meet prisoners from other sections during the daily break-time as before.
