Palestinian Detainees Continue Disobedience in Israeli Prisons For 26th Day in Row

S.K | DOP -

For the 26th day in a row, Palestinian prisoners in the Israeli occupation prisons continue disobedience against the prison administration, in response to its announcement of implementing punitive measures recommended by the extremist Israeli Minister of National Security, Itamar Ben Gvir.

National Emergency Committee of Palestinian Prisoners Affairs announced in Monday, February 20, 2023 that the Palestinian detainees’ rebellious steps against the punitive measures of the extremist Ben Gvir will not stop until their freedom guaranteed.

It’s noteworthy that Palestinian prisoners escalated their protest steps yesterday after Friday prayer and will resort to hunger strikes by the start of the holy month of Ramadan to fight issues such as solitary confinement, denial of family visits, inadequate medical treatment, and other degrading conditions.

The Occupation Prisons Administration has been imposing collective punishments against Palestinian prisoners in prisons, in response to their “disobedience” steps.

On a daily basis, the new Israeli Government practices systematic violations, deliberate detentions, house demolitions and mandatory deportation policy against Palestinians in a multiplied approach to suffocate and complicate Palestinians’ lives.

The number of Palestinian detainees in Israeli occupation prisons is 4,780, including 29 females and 160 children.
