RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Palestinian human rights sources reported that a state of extreme tension is prevailing among the prisoners in the Israeli detention center of Ashkelon, due to the continued abuses against them.

Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) said in a statement on Wednesday that the Palestinian prisoners in Ashkelon jail have been protesting against the campaigns of searches and raids that have been continuously carried out by the prison administration and its units.

PPS quoted Palestinian captives in Ashkelon as saying that the prison conditions are “very bad”, and that the number of sick prisoners has been constantly increasing amid a deliberate medical neglect by the occupation authorities.

The prisoners also pointed out that the living conditions become more difficult in the summer due to the high humidity and temperatures and the absence of ventilators in most of the prison’s sections.
