S.K | DOP -

Israeli repression units stormed section (16) Monday, February 13, 2023 section (16) of Ofer Israeli prison and conducted extensive provocative searches among Palestinian prisoners.

The Palestinian Prisoners’ Club stated today Monday that this Israeli raid is the third that Israeli repression units carried out since the end of last January, 2023 till today inside Israeli Ofer prison.

Israeli repression units of the occupation prisons administration, including soldiers with strong bodies and a previous military experience in the occupation army.

It’s noteworthy that these units’ members have received special trainings to suppress and abuse Palestinian prisoners, using various weapons, including knives, batons, tear gas canisters, electrical devices that cause burns weapons incendiary bullets, internationally banned “dumdum” bullets, and other bullets that cause severe pain.

Note that 4,500 Palestinians are currently inside Israeli occupation prisons, including 400 who have severe and chronic illnesses, 31 women, and 500 administrative detainees.

In the absence of strong pressure to stop the systemic inhumane abuses, the racist and fascist policies of the Prison Service Administration have a negative impact on Palestinian detainees,  as these provocative acts in the West-Bank  come amid the escalating atmosphere, especially after the formation of the new Israeli Government.

In recent years, Palestinian prisoners in Israeli detention have launched multiple strikes to demand better imprisonment conditions, including an end to the unjustified Israeli policy of raiding prisoners’ sections.
