RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Mohannad Shraim, a member of the hunger strike leadership committee, confirmed that the captives in Israeli Ramon prison have refused to be strip searched, and confronted the Israeli forces which broke into the prison on Tuesday.

Shraim said, in a statement to Ahrar center for prisoners’ studies and human rights on Friday, that the prisoners in ward (4) in Ramon prison refused to be strip searched as ordered by “al-Mutsada” and “Doour” forces that broke into the jail after midnight leading to a confrontation between those forces and the detainees who are all affiliated with Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

He added that a group of prisoners in ward (4) burned their mattresses to protest the strip search, which violates all norms and international laws. Meanwhile, prisoners of wards (1) and (5) started threatening to start fire inside the prison if those units did not leave.

As a result, soldiers from the Nahshon special unit intervened, stormed the wards that burned the mattresses, and confiscated all electric appliances and closed the wards to force the prisoners to strip search with the sole aim of humiliating the prisoners, Shraim charged.
