GAZA, (PIC)– A state of high tension still prevails at Negev prison after elements of the IPS special units stormed the prison yesterday evening and violently attacked a Palestinian prisoner, the Palestinian prisoners’ center for studies revealed.

Riad Ashqar, director of the center, said in a press statement on Monday that the special units stormed last night Section 6 in the Negev prison, where they drove out 11 prisoners and conducted a search campaign in the section for several hours.

They tried to force strip search on a prisoner, but he refused. He was violently beaten and isolated, causing a state of tension among the prisoners in protest at the IPS attack on their colleague, he explained.

The prisoners threatened to step up their protest in case the IPS refused to provide their colleague with the appropriate treatment and to end his solitary confinement, he added.

Ashqar confirmed that Negev prison is continuously witnessing Israeli brutal breaking into the prisoners’ rooms under the pretext of looking for communication devices used by the prisoners to communicate with their families.
