Israeli soldiers attacked, Sunday, section 13 of Nafha Prison in the southern Negev Desert, causing several injuries, the Detainees and Ex-Detainees Committee has reported.
Hasan Abed-Rabbo, the spokesperson of the Detainees Committee, stated that the soldiers attacked the detainees as they slept at dawn, and damaged their personal belongings, in addition to causing a few injuries.
Abed-Rabbo added that the attack caused tension in the prison, before the detainees protested the assault against Section 13, and closed several sections of the detention camp.
The attack is part of the numerous Israeli violations against the detainees, including forcing many in solitary confinement and denying family visits to scores of detainees.
It is worth mentioning that the violations against the detainees in Nafha witnessed a serious escalation in the year 2019, which marked some of the most violent assaults against them in ten years, while the most serious violations were carried out against the detainees in Ofer prison.
In October of this year, the soldiers abducted 467 Palestinians, including 10 women and 135 children, in the occupied Palestinian territory.
On November 10th, The Palestinian Detainees’ Committee, the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society, and the Wadi Hilweh Information Center in Silwan issued a report revealing that the number of detainees imprisoned by Israel is about 4650, including 34 women, 160 children, and 500 who are held under the arbitrary Administrative Detention orders without charges or trial.
