Palestinian Minister of Detainees, Issa Qaraqe’, stated that Israeli soldiers of the Nachshon Brigade, attacked Palestinian political prisoners in sections 13 and 14 of the Nafha prison, in the Negev Desert, and attacked several detainees while searching their beds, the Palestine News Network (PNN) reported.

Qaraqe’ said that the soldiers were provoking the detainees in an attempt to draw escalation, adding that the detainees threatened to resume their open-ended hunger strike as this attack is a direct violation to Israel’s vow to halt all violations against the detainees.

He added that, on Thursday, the prison administration in Nafa stopped the visitation while families of detainees from Hebron and Bethlehem from visiting their detained family members after claiming that a family tried to smuggle a mobile phone.

The army then stormed sections 13 and 14 resulting in the detainees banging on the doors and returning their meals in protest; the Prison Administration declared the two sections closed until further notice totally isolating the detainees.

Approximately two weeks ago, Palestinian detainees held by Israel suspended their open-ended hunger strike after the Israeli Prison Administration agreed to most of their demands, including halting violations against them, allowing visitations to Gaza Strip detainees, and ending solitary confinement policies.

The agreement also states that detainees, held under administrative detention, will have their so-called “secret files” (that even defense attorneys do not have access to) examined by legal committees, and that, if Israel fails to provide “security information’ against them, they will not receive an extension to their administrative detention.
