Ofer prison raid (archive image)

The Palestinian Prisoners’ Club, on Sunday, said that tension prevailed in Israel’s Ofer prison after “Metzada” repression unit broke into section 20, which contains imprisoned children, to transfer leading activists.

The Club said that the Israeli Prison System (IPS) informed the prisoners that the transfer is due to a Shabak order and that it would be executed, without providing any further details.

Metzada soldiers assaulted prisoners after breaking into their cells in sections 19 and 20, which contain detained Palestinian children.

Ofer prison witnessed one of the toughest confrontations with IPS last month, when Israeli forces repressed prisoners causing several injuries, after a mass hunger strike.
