Palestinian prisoners in high alert all over occupied Palestine
The Palestinian prisoners club says the prisoners all over occupied Palestine are on a state of high alert two days after the martyrdom of sheikh Khader Adnan.
A state of tension is prevailing throughout all the sections where Palestinian prisoners are kept in the Israeli occupation's prisons two days after the martyrdom of Palestinian Islamic Jihad senior member Khader Adnan following a harrowing 87-day-long hunger strike.
The Israeli prisons administration still has a lockdown in place on the Palestinian sections in preparation for any confrontation that the Palestinian prisoners might initiate against the Israelis, the Palestinian Prisoners Club said. "It is also threatening to punish them if they did not pledge to go back on the threats they had made."
The Palestinian prisoners in the Israeli occupation's prisons took a series of steps in the wake of Adnan's martyrdom, as they did not eat their food and did not stick to the prison routine.
Moreover, the Commission of Detainees Affairs said Wednesday that the Palestinian prisoners in the Megiddo prison kidnapped two Israeli occupation prison guards in section 10, cell number seven.
"Tension and confusion are prevailing in the prison, and large forces from the Israeli prison service are rushing to the department as the hostages were taken," the commission said in a brief statement.
Palestinian Ministry of Detainees underlined that it was following up on what was happening in Megiddo prison, and stressed the right of prisoners to respond to any attacks against them, warning against the commitment of any blunders against them.
"Prisoner Mohammad Kharousheh, who attacked an Israeli prison guard in response to the assassination of Sheikh Khader Adnan, is currently in the hospital after being brutally assaulted by the repression units of the occupation prison administration," the Prisoners Information Office said.
The Palestinian captive movement "holds the occupation's prison administration fully responsible for the safety and life of prisoner Mohammad Kharousheh, the statement added.
Khader Adnan's martyrdom, who had been on hunger strike for nearly three months in protest of his unfair detention, comes two days after the Israeli military court in Ofer Prison refused to issue his release despite several warnings that his health condition was deteriorating.
It is noteworthy that this open-ended hunger strike, which Adnan staged until his death is the longest he has ever waged over the past years of his detention. The martyr had already been through five previous hunger strikes.
The occupation forces arrested Khader Adnan on February 5, after raiding his house in the town of Arraba, south of Jenin.
Adnan had been arrested a total of 12 times throughout his life and spent a total of 8 years in occupation detention centers, most of which were under administrative detention.
