Qadura Fares, president of the Prisoners Club, affirmed that the aim of the protests is to send a clear message to the Tel Aviv Government to demand the end to the punitive measures against those prisoners.

At the same time, several Palestinian prisoners will stage a 24-hour hunger strike.

Tension in those prisons escalated since September 2021, following the escape of six Palestinian prisoners from the Gilboa high-security jail.

Although they were caught after a massive manhunt, Tel Aviv officials implemented several punitive measures against the remaining detainees such as banning visits and reducing yard time, which led to clashes and strikes.

As part of those actions, since January 1, some 500 detainees have been boycotting the Israeli military court system, to protest their imprisonment under the controversial policy of administrative detention.
