Tension rising in Israeli prisons after women prisoners impose end to isolation
The women Palestinian prisoners’ will triumphs, ending their isolation in Israeli prisons, amid rising tension.
Al Mayadeen’s correspondent reported today, Tuesday, that tensions are rising in all Israeli occupation prisons, noting that "all [prison] blocks have been completely shut down."
Our correspondent also indicated that contact with the prisoners of Block 12 in Nafha Prison was lost," leaving the fate of more than 80 prisoners unknown.
He pointed out that there is true fear for the lives of these prisoners, some of whom are sick and elderly prisoners, due to expected systematic repression by the Israeli occupation prisons' administration.
He revealed that the fate of the prisoner Youssef Al Mabhouh, who carried out the operation in revenge for the systematic assault on female prisoners, is still unknown, warning that his life is in danger.
This comes at a time the Palestinian Prisoners Ministry announced that an agreement has been reached between the Captive Movement and the Israeli Prison Service, stipulating the end of the women prisoners’ isolation and the arbitrary measures against them.
The Hamas movement considered that "the administration of the Israeli occupation prisons is trying, by returning the isolated female prisoners to their blocks, to cover up its actions in order to prevent any uprising in the streets and any action by the Resistance's leadership.”
The Palestinian Prisoners' Committee in Gaza declared a state of emergency in support of the Captive Movement.
In this context, senior Hamas official Osama Hamdan said that "the Movement's message to the occupation is clear that the prisoners' file is separate from other files."
Hamdan confirmed in an exclusive interview for Al Mayadeen that "the heroes of the Gilboa Tunnel, in addition to Ahmed Saadat, Mahmoud Issa, and Marwan Barghouti are at the head of those who must be liberated."
On Monday, private sources told Al Mayadeen that the Hamas movement conveyed a strongly-worded message to the Egyptian delegation in Gaza about the occupation's assault on female prisoners.
The Palestine Center had called on all institutions and organizations that advocate women's rights to "urgently intervene to put an end to the worsening suffering of female prisoners in order to obtain justice for them and to stop the crimes the occupation commits against them.”
For his part, the Deputy Secretary-General of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Abu Ahmad Fouad, confirmed in an interview for Al Mayadeen that the Seif Al-Quds Battle strengthened the Axis of Resistance and paved the way for different forms of resistance across Palestine.”
Fouad indicated that "there is a consensus on support for the prisoners, and our political differences should not be reflected on the prisoners' file."
He also called for "ending security coordination [with the Israeli occupation] that is very harmful to the Palestinians."
This comes after an Egyptian security delegation arrived in the Gaza Strip last Sunday to hold talks with Hamas' leadership and other Palestinian factions on the issues of preserving calm and reconstruction.
