On Monday, The Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs Commission confirmed that the four rearrested prisoners were severely beaten.

The Commission also revealed in a statement that the occupation court rejected the petition submitted by the Commission's lawyer to allow him to visit the four prisoners who were rearrested during the past few days. It expressed concern over obscuring information about the conditions of the four prisoners, warning that the Israelis will seek revenge on them. 

For its part, the Captive Movement gave the occupation until next Friday to end its repressive measures against the prisoners, or else a strategic battle will be launched.

This came during a solidarity stand organized by the Prisoners’ Committee for the National and Islamic Forces in Gaza, with the participation of representatives of the factions, liberated prisoners, and prisoners' rights institutions. They stressed that the issue of prisoners is a priority for the people, warning the occupation against the consequences of carrying on their abusive, foolish acts.

The occupation court decided to extend the detention of the four prisoners who were rearrested until next Sunday, according to Al Mayadeen correspondent.

Last Saturday, a full-scale strike took place in the Jenin Governorate, in response to a call by the national and Islamic forces to show solidarity with the 4 prisoners who had liberated themselves from the Gilboa Prison but were later rearrested.

It is noteworthy that, last Friday evening, the Israeli occupation radio announced the arrest of two prisoners released from Gilboa prison, Yaqoub Mahmoud Qadri and Mahmoud Abdullah al-Arida, followed by an additional two, Zakaria Zubeidi and Mohammed al-Arida, after a few hours.
