Israeli Occupation Tightens Restrictions on Palestinian Prisoners


The Israeli occupation yesterday imposed new collective sanctions on Palestinian prisoners inside the Ofer Prison, The Palestinian Prisoners Club reported.

The Palestinian Prisoners Club (PPC) said, Israeli occupation imposed fines on the prisoners and prevented family visits. The measures come as part of the continuous Israeli violations against Palestinian prisoners across Israeli prisons, the PPC added.

The occupation is trying to stop prisoners taking action against its plans to tighten restrictions imposed on them, the PPC said.

Palestinian prisoners are protesting against the increasing Israeli restrictions, which were tightened after six detainees escaped in September last year.

As of January, the number of Palestinian prisoners inside Israeli jails was 4,500, including 500 held under administrative detention – without charge or trial.
