The Palestinian Detaineesâ€™ Committee has reported, on Saturday afternoon, that Israeli soldiers of the Masada special unit, of the Israelâ€™s Prison Service, invaded Section 3 of Galboaâ€™ prison, and assaulted many detainees, an issue that pushed them to declare a hunger strike.
The head of the Detaineesâ€™ Committee Issa Qaraqe said the soldiers assaulted several detainees, and searched all rooms, adding that 120 Palestinians are held in this section alone.
Qaraqeâ€™ added that the invasion was sudden, without any provocation from the detainees, an issue that created tension, especially after the soldiers forced a detainee, identified as Mohammad â€˜Arman, in solitary confinement. Â Â
The detainees then decided to launch a hunger strike to protest the invasion, the assaults and ongoing violations.
