Administrative prisoners in "Ofer" prison boycott medication
Ill administrative detainees in "Ofer Prison" boycott medications handed to them by the Israeli occupation Prisons Authority.
The Palestinian Prisoner's Club announced Tuesday that ill administrative detainees in "Ofer Prison" have decided to boycott medications handed to them by the Israeli occupation prisons authority, in protest of their administrative detention and in demand of their immediate release.
In addition to boycotting the occupation courts for the 53rd consecutive day, the Prisoner's Club considered that this step comes in the context of an action plan that will include all prisons, in protest of the administrative detention policy.
For its part, the Administrative Prisoners Committee in Occupation Prisons called on all Palestinians to carry out popular activities in support of prisoners in general and administrative prisoners in particular, requesting from all prisoners' institutions and concerned official bodies to raise awareness over their case.
Ongoing prisons Intifada
A couple of days ago, Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported that Palestinian prisoners detained in Israeli occupation prisons have locked down all their blocks amid their resistance to the Prisons Authority's latest enacted measures.
In the same context, the National Captive Movement in occupation prisons confirmed the continuation of the prisons Intifada against the occupation.
The escalatory measures come as the Israeli occupation’s prison system has imposed new penalties on Palestinian prisoners on February 5, decreasing the time and number of prisoners allowed for yard time, in violation of prior agreements between Palestinian prisoners and the Israeli occupation’s authorities.
In May 2021, the Israeli occupation issued the highest percentage of administrative detention orders -- reaching 200 orders.
About 60 prisoners and administrative detainees went on hunger strikes, most of them against administrative detention. It is noteworthy that among the administrative prisoners are four male minors, and one female -- Shurooq Al-Badan.
