Israeli Prison Authorities transported the prominent Hamas leader and Palestinian Legislative Council member Mr. Hassan Yousef from Ashkelon prison to the Negev detention camp.

Yousef told the Prisoners Media Center that he remained in solitary in Ashkelon prison until he was transferred to the Negev.

He confirmed that the situation in the Ashkelon prison is very bad and that hundreds of Palestinian prisoners are suffering from the bad quality of food and the lack of minimum human living conditions.
