Palestinian prisoners preparing for landmark rights battle
The Palestinian Prisoners Club announces preparations for a battle by prisoners, the most important since 2004, against the Israeli policies of oppression.
The Palestinian Prisoners Club announced that the prisoners are preparing for a battle to retrieve their rights and reject the Israeli occupation's policy against them.
This battle is considered the most important since 2004 and will begin next Friday, with 4,400 detainees in Israeli occupation prisons demanding their rights to be restored to the pre-Freedom Tunnel status.
On another hand, Hamas senior official Ismail Redwan said the occupation is attempting to take advantage of the world's preoccupation with Ukraine and make use of its normalization with some countries.
In an interview for Al Mayadeen, Redwan stressed that the Palestinian Resistance stands beside the prisoners and that the occupation is fully responsible for any harm that may befall them.
The Palestinian Prisoners Club reported increased tensions at An-Naqab prison in occupied Palestine after Israeli prison authorities arbitrarily sent the Imams of Friday prayer to solitary confinement.
The Club noted that the Israeli forces have launched a large-scale campaign of suppression, threatening to raid units and fire dozens of tear gas bombs.
Israeli guards constantly subject Palestinian prisoners to repressive practices which include pepper spray, sound bombs, rubber-coated steel bullets, batons, as well as police dogs.
The Israeli prison authorities have previously raided Section 28, severely beating the prisoners, confiscating their electric tools, and enforcing a general prohibition on phone communication.
Prisoners boycotting Israeli occupation courts
In early January, the administrative prisoners took a collective stand, announcing a boycott of all judicial procedures related to administrative detention.
Administrative prisoners are detained in Israeli occupation prisons without charges or trials. The occupation doesn't allow prisoners or their lawyers to inspect evidence materials, in clear and explicit violation of the provisions of international humanitarian law.
The Israeli occupation Prisons Authority claims it has secret files about administrative prisoners that can never be revealed, consequently, the detainees would not know the period of their imprisonment.
Administrative prisoners are often subjected to the renewal of their detention period multiple times for a period up to three months, six months, eight months, and sometimes even a full year.
