Al-Naqab prisoners protest repressive measures of Israeli occupation
The Palestinian Prisoners' Club announces holding a protest in the Israeli occupation prisons, to demand the return of all prisoners who were recently transferred.
The Palestinian Muhjat Al-Quds Foundation announced that the Islamic Jihad prisoners' leadership in the occupation prisons carried out protests in the prisons of "Eshel", "Ramon", "Negev" and "Megiddo" in response to the repression that prisoner Abed Obaid and other members of the PIJ were subjected to in the "Megiddo" prison.
The leadership threatened that there would not be a return to normality without the return of all prisoners who were recently transferred from prison, including prisoner Thafer Al-Rimawi.
The leadership of the Islamic Jihad prisoners' decision comes a few hours after the Israeli occupation prison administration in "Megiddo" prison transferred 70 prisoners who were in Bloc 8.
In turn, the Palestinian Prisoners' Club reported that the administration of "Megiddo" prison transferred 40 prisoners yesterday, and another 30 prisoners are expected to be transferred today
The Captive Movement pointed out that this transfer comes about a week after the transfer of 80 prisoners from "Hadarim" prison to "Nafha" prison, during which special forces carried out extensive searches and destruction of the prisoners' belongings.
It is worth noting that 4,700 Palestinian prisoners were still in Israeli occupation prisons by the end of 2022, including 29 women and 150 children, and about 850 administrative detainees, including 7 children, two female prisoners, 5 deputies in the Palestinian Legislative Council, and 15 journalists.
Among the Palestinian prisoners, 330 have been detained for more than 20 years, 25 before the signing of the so-called "Oslo Accords" in 1993, and 552 prisoners have been sentenced to life imprisonment.
