RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Israeli repression units stormed the Eichel prison in Beersheba in the south of occupied Palestine on Wednesday evening and clashed with the prisoners, injuring a number of them.

Sources from inside the jail told PIC’s correspondent that the repression units stormed the prison under the pretext of carrying out searches, which led to provoking the prisoners and the eruption of confrontations between them and the Israeli soldiers.

The sources added that the soldiers attacked the prisoners, wounding five of them and that the repression units have also isolated a number of prisoners under the pretext of being involved in the clashes.

The state of tension still prevails in the Eichel jail where the detainees demand the release of their oppressed colleagues from the solitary confinement.

Meanwhile; Ahrar Center for prisoners’ Studies and human rights warned that there are 31 patient prisoners in Eichel jail who suffer from serious deterioration in their health conditions.

The Palestinian human rights Center said in a press statement on Thursday that “the Israeli prison administration has recently moved the sick prisoners from southern the prisons to the Eichel detention center because of its closeness to the Israeli hospitals”, adding that 25 per cent of the detainees in Eichel suffer from serious health issues.

It pointed out that the patients prisoners in Eichel are also exposed to a policy of medical neglect that has aggravated their health status.

Ahrar called on concerned official institutions and international bodies to intervene for the release of the sick captives and provide them with the appropriate treatment.
