Israeli occupation forces attacked Palestinian prisoners in the Israeli Galbou prisons, vandalizing their belongings, on Friday, January 27.

The Palestinian Prisoners Society PPS reported that Israeli forces stormed the prison cells of Palestinian prisoners who were transferred from Rimon to Galbou prison.

The PPS pointed out that the Israeli troops vandalized the prisoners’ belongings and destroyed the prison Cantina, the prison’s shop.

It added that the Israeli occupation forces stole some items from the Cantina, causing them losses estimated at $30,000.
