120 prisoners to be transferred from Gilboa to Nafha desert prison

[ PIC 12/12/2012 – 09:18 PM ]


RAMALLAH, (PIC)– A Palestinian human rights source reported that a state of extreme tension prevailed at the Israeli Gilboa prison due to the prison administration’s decision to transfer 120 prisoners in section 1 to the Nafha desert prison in southern occupied Palestine.

The Gilboa prison administration claimed that this procedure aims at closing the section for maintenance and repair works, adding that it will begin implementing the transfer process on Wednesday.

The Prison administration has informed 37 Palestinian prisoners to get ready for their departure, and threatened to use the force in case the prisoners refused to obey.

The Palestinian Prisoner Club reported in a press release, that the prisoners in the Gilboa jail rejected the resolution and threatened to launch wide protest steps and to declare an open hunger strike to express their complete rejection of their transfer to the southern prisons away from their families.

It stated that the prisoners will reject the meals as a protest step and “will not stop hunger strike until the cancelation of this arbitrary decision”, urging the all institutions to support the captives, according to the statement.

The essayists explore the history of torture in Israel, the daily challenges that practitioners face in seeking accountability for torture and CIDT in Israel, and the changing face of torture.
