RAMALLAH, (PIC)– A Palestinian woman’s finger was severed when prison guards slammed a door on her when she was visiting her son Bilal Abbas in the Israeli Ohlikdar prison.

Prison guards previously killed a Palestinian girl Rafida Badr after shutting a barrier gate on her head during a visit she made to her father.

The incident was one of thousands of incidents that take place during prison family visits, the prisoner society in Ramallah said.

In a separate development, Israeli authorities continue to isolate three female inmates of the Hasharon prison, the prison society said. Rights organizations have demanded their removal from solitary confinement.

There are 38 female inmates in the Damon and Hasharon prisons. 27 of them have been sentenced, eight are being detained awaiting trial and four are in administrative detention, the society added.
