80 Palestinian prisoners, held in Nafha prison, have complained about the ill-conditioned ward No. 3, which houses bugs and mice.
A lawyer for Prisoners’ Club society, recently delegated to the check on the prisoners, said in a statement, ‘Nafha prison Ward No. 3 has a poor hygiene, with insects and mice spreading out’, according to Al Ray.
He explained that being close to a police canine facility has got the section inviting insects, adding that a prisoner’s ear has been lately bitten by rats.
Ward 3 is overcrowded, with ten prisoners currently being held in each single room; floors are damaged and wastewater floods into the rooms; beds are rife with moths as a result of the high humidity, according to the statement.
5,200 Palestinians are held in Israeli jails, according to the Palestinian Authority’s Ministry of Prisoners’ Affairs.
