Palestinian Detainees Continue Revolt Against Israeli Repressive Measures

B.M | DOP -

Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails entered on Monday their 28th day of disobedience against Israeli repressive measures, demanding their full rights.

The Palestinian ministry of detainees and ex-detainees said that Palestinian prisoners’ protest steps included returning meals and delaying their transfers via the Bosta, the Israeli prison transfer vehicle.

Earlier on Sunday, new protest steps included night confusion and chants to demand their rights, the foremost of which is freedom.

These measures came as the Israeli occupation authorities have not yet responded to the prisoners’ demands.

Israeli occupation authorities have imposed new restrictions on Palestinian prisoners. The measures included reducing the prisoners’ use of water and bread, increasing search operations, and depriving prisoners of treatment.

These unjust measures were taken by the Israeli new government which has been tightening its grip on Palestinian prisoners since the start of 2023.

Earlier in February, a statement by the High National Emergency Committee for Palestinian Prisoners pointed out that prisoners will continue disobedience and go through an open-ended hunger strike by the start of the holy month of Ramadan.

Palestinian figures showed that about 4,780 Palestinian prisoners, affected by Israel’s punitive measures, are held inside Israeli jails, including 160 children, and 29 females.
