Palestinian Detainees Escalate Disobedience Steps in Israeli Prisons For 35th Day in Row

S.K | DOP -

For the 35th 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 have escalated their protest steps 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.

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