Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails entered on Friday their 18th day of disobedience against Israeli repressive measures, demanding their full rights.
The Palestinian Center for Prisoners Studies PCPS said that Palestinian prisoners intended to start new protest steps. It came as the Israeli occupation authorities have not yet responded to their 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.
