Wafa News Agency | March 12, 2012

RAMALLAH, March 12, 2012 (WAFA) – Israeli police Monday clashed with Palestinian prisoners held in Asqalan prison, south of Israel, after police tried to force prisoners to strip for search, according to Minister of Prisoners Affairs Issa Qaraqi.

He said 11 prisoners were injured, including one seriously.

Qaraqi told WAFA that prison police brought dogs along with them as they entered the prisoners’ cells early Monday and ordered them to strip for search.

Prisoners refused and clashed with the police who attacked them with gas bombs and clubs.

Qaraqi urged immediate international intervention to protect the prisoners against a rise in Israeli attacks.
