‘Israel’ cancels family visits for Palestinian prisoners, says NGO – Quds News Network10 Settembre 2021 0 Di marco zinno
Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Israeli occupation authorities has canceled family visits for Palestinian prisoners in its jails until the end of September, the Palestine Prisoner’s Society (PPS) said on Thursday.
The PPS, citing the Red Cross, said that the Israeli occupation authorities have canceled family visits for Palestinian prisoners until the end of this month, due to the “dangerous developments” in the Israeli prisons.
The occupation authorities decision came after Israeli special units and forces cracked down on several prisons, including Ketziot’s Section 6 in the Negev and Ramon Prison, in an attempt to disperse some 400 prisoners from the Islamic Jihad in a number of other jails.
In response, the prisoners in the Negev prison yesterday set fire in 7 sections of the prison.
Today, the prisoners in the Ramon prison also set fire in several sections of the prison.
All Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails announced general alarm and insurgency against Israeli laws, in response to the Israeli repression and punitive measures, which have been imposed for the fourth day in a row.
Such punitive measures came after the heroic act of six Palestinian prisoners who managed to free themselves on September 6 2021, from Gilbou prison, a high-security Israeli prison, through a secret tunnel they had reportedly dug beneath the prison.
Gilbou’s six breakers were identified as belonging to the Islamic Jihad movement, except one who is a former commander of Fatah’s Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades.
The planned relocation of the prisoners belonging to the Islamic Jihad was part of a set of punitive and repressive measures taken by the Israeli Prison Service (IPS) following the Gilbou’s prison break.
About 300 of them have been moved so far.
