The Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) denounced that on Sunday, Israeli repression forces raided sections three and eight at Rimon prison, located in the center of the country, and physically assaulted the inmates.
Earlier this month, representatives of Palestinian prisoners held in Israel declared a state of general mobilization in protest of a new series of reprisal measures by the Israeli Prison Service (IPS).
In view of this situation, several Palestinian factions called for a street mobilization on Tuesday in support of their detained compatriots.
At the same time, it was announced that several 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.
