GAZA, (PIC)– According to Ministry of Detainees and Ex-detainees in Gaza, a state of tension between the prisoners and the prison administration has prevailed Eichel prison, following the attack on prisoner Mohammed Misbah.

The ministry said in a statement that the state of tension has prevailed in the prison after the Israeli forces attacked Misbah and transferred him to the solitary confinement.

It added that there are fears that the prison administration will carry out break-ins into some of the prison’s rooms and suppress the prisoners who have expressed their solidarity with prisoner Mohammed Misbah.

The prisoners’ spokesman and the prison administration have been holding negotiations for halting the attacks on captives and releasing captive Misbah from the solitary confinement.

The ministry warned that “the continued attacks on prisoners will result in further deterioration of the prison conditions and will drive the detainees to take more escalatory and protest steps against the prison administration, which refuses to respond to their legitimate demands.”

The International Committee demanded the Red Cross and the human rights organizations to immediately intervene in order to stop the Israeli arbitrary procedures against the Palestinian captives.
