Palestinian prisoner injured after special forces storm Negev jail

Days of Palestine -

A Palestinian prisoner was slightly injured on Tuesday evening after Israeli Special Forces violently stormed sections in the Negev prison and assaulted detainees. 

According to the Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS), prisoner Ibrahim al-Natsha, from Occupied Jerusalem, protested the forces’ suppression of prisoners in the jail by trying to burn himself. 

As a result, Natsha suffered some burns and received medical assistance. 

The PPS said that a state of tension was prevailed in the Negev jail after the Palestinian prisoners closed the sections of the prison in protest at their exposure to maltreatment at the hands of special forces and jailers.
