Troops Break Into Asqalan, Nahfa Prisons

In an attempt to prevent the detainees’ hunger strike from spreading to all Israeli prisons and detention facilities, undercover forces of the Israeli Army broke into the Asqalan and Nafha prisons.

Palestinian detainees in several Israeli prisons started their hunger strike seven days ago demanding their full rights, an end to the Israeli policies of solitary confinement, ongoing attacks, and demanding their internationally guaranteed rights.

The Waed Society for Detainees reported on Monday evening that the Matzada and Nahshon military forces in charge of all detention facilities broke on Monday evening into section 13 of Nafha prisons.

The army also broke into detainees’ rooms in Asqalan after blacking it out, and fired dozens of gas bombs.

The Matzada forces also broke into the rooms of old detainees, including the room where the seriously ill detainee, Akram Mansour, is held.

Mansour suffers from tumor and requires urgent attention as he recently started repeatedly going in and out of coma as he remains deprived from the urgent and specialized medical treatment.

Also on Monday, the administration at the Ofer Prison forced nine detainees into solitary confinement in an attempt to break the open-ended hunger strike.

The Waed Society identified the detainees who were placed in solitary confinement as; Mohammad Issa, Nael Al Halaby, Ala’ Arar, Luay Arar, Mohammad Arar, Mohammad Zawahra, Saleh J’eidy, Yassin Farraj and Ramzy Washha.

Soldiers also moved all the Palestinian detainees in Shatta Prison to the Majiddo Prison in an attempt to break their strike.
