Moreover, the Israeli occupation oppression units stormed the Israeli jail of ‘Damon’, brutally attacked the Palestinian female detainees, and confiscated all their belongings turning the rooms into cells.

In the Israeli prison of Negev, 120 Palestinian prisoners announced yesterday an open hunger strike in protest against their continued collective isolation and confiscating their electrical tools and basic necessities.
