Palestinian Detainees Continue Civil Disobedience in Israeli Jails For 15th Day in Row

S.K | DOP -

For the 15th day in a row, Palestinian prisoners in the Israeli occupation jails continue the steps of civil disobedience against the prison administration, in response to its announcement to start the application of punitive measures recommended by the extremist Israeli Minister of National Security, Itamar Ben Gvir.

Yesterday, February 27, 2023, Palestinian prisoners returned meals in several detention centers, preparing for the hunger strike battle scheduled for the first of the next Ramadan.

National Emergency Committee of Palestinian Prisoners Affairs announced since Monday, February 20, 2023 that the militant steps Palestinian prisoners initiated inside the occupation prisons to confront the punitive measures of the extremist Ben Ghafir against them will not stop until their freedom guaranteed.

The Occupation Prisons Administration has been imposing collective punishments against Palestinian prisoners in a number of detention centers, in response to the “disobedience” steps they had taken.

The new Israeli Government follow a systematic daily violations against Palestinian citizens, deliberate detentions, house demolitions and mandatory deportation policy in a multiplied approach in a way to suffocate and complicate Palestinian lives.

Note that 4,500 Palestinians currently detained 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 destructive impact on Palestinian detainees.
