IOF storm minors section of "Damon" prison, assault them
Earlier, on Monday evening, Israeli occupation forces stormed the "Damon" prison and brutally beat child prisoners.
The Commission for Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs declared, in a statement, that the “Damon” prison administration stormed the children’s section, assaulted them, and imposed harsh penalties against them.
The Commission indicated that the 'penalties' included preventing phone calls, seizing electrical appliances, banning visits for a month, and closing the canteen for a week.
The statement further warned that the prison administration’s storming of the children prisoners’ section, their assault, and the imposition of collective punishments against them, is an insistence on the occupation’s terrorist and savage behavior, amounting to a measure that will reestablish the state of tension and escalation inside prisons and threaten to explode the situation again.
It also confirmed that the raids and searches carried out by the prison administration, which have become part of the daily life of the prisoners, will not succeed in imposing the will of the occupation on the prisoners and letting its schemes pass.
The prisoners’ determination and steadfastness shall forever stand stronger than the tyranny of the occupation and its brutality, the Commission stressed.
