Israeli occupation storms prisoners' cells in 'Hadarim prison'
The Israeli occupation forces conducted a raid on the Israeli "Hadarim" prison, brutalizing select prisoners in several cells.
The Israeli occupation forces in the Israeli prisons administration, spearheaded by the Yamaz unit, stormed the prison cells in the "Hadarim" prison in Tulkarm, conducting widespread searches in the prison.
The Palestinian Prisoners Club issued a statement clarifying that the Israeli occupation stormed cells 10, 11, 12, 15, 20, 31, 34, and 38 of block 3 in the Israeli prison, vandalizing the properties of the prisoners after violating their rights and brutalizing them.
"The occupation forces confiscated a lot of written materials and sports equipment from the prisoners, and the so-called guards threatened further punitive measures," the PPC's statement added.
This is the second raid conducted by the oppressive forces in "Hadarim" since late November. The occupation has 80 prisoners detained within its walls, the majority of which are serving life sentences.
The PPC revealed Saturday the number of Palestinians detained at the hands of the Israeli occupation forces since the start of 2022 in a report published on its Facebook page on the occasion of Human Rights Day.
According to the organization, the Israeli occupation has detained around 6,500 Palestinians since the onset of the year, including hundreds of women and children.
The occupation, according to the PPC, arrested 153 women and 811 children. Though some of the detained were released, "Tel Aviv" issued 2134 administrative detention orders against Palestinian prisoners during the same period.
There are currently 4,700 Palestinian prisoners in confinement between 23 Israeli prisons, detention centers, and pending investigation, including 34 female prisoners, 150 children, and 835 administrative detainees.
Meanwhile, the PPC also revealed last month that the Israeli occupation forces have detained more than 9,300 Palestinian youth under the age of 18 since 2015.
It also revealed a few months earlier that there were some 600 Palestinian prisoners suffering from diseases in the Israeli occupation's prisons.
The head of the Studies and Documentation department in the Commission of Detainees and ex-Detainees' Affairs, Abdel Nasser Farwana underlined that the prisoners are going through tragic circumstances, brutal treatment, agonizing torture, and criminality committed by the Israeli occupation against Palestinians imprisoned in Israeli prisons.
