In a provocative move, the suppression units of the Israeli prison administration on Tuesday, July 11, 2023, forcefully entered Section 4 of Negev Prison and evacuated prisoners, causing a state of severe tension, according to the Prisoners’ Media Office.
The office stated in a press release that the Negev Prison is currently experiencing high tension and pressure following a series of measures imposed by the Israeli prison administration in the past two weeks.
The statement also indicated that the prisoners in Negev Prison are preparing to embark on an open hunger strike in response to the repeated and ongoing violations by the prison administration.
The raid on Section 4 and the subsequent evacuation of prisoners has further strained the already fragile atmosphere within the prison.
The potential hunger strike by the inmates serves as a desperate response to the continued violations and mistreatment they endure in Israeli prisons. It is a powerful form of protest aimed at drawing attention to their plight and demanding justice.
