Palestinian prisoners exposed to further maltreatment in Ramadan

[ PIC 29/07/2013 – 12:53 PM ]


GAZA, (PIC)– The Palestinian prisoners center for studies said that the Israeli prison administrations persist in its arbitrary measures against the Palestinian prisoners, especially during the holy month of Ramadan, without any regard to the appeals made by human rights groups.

Spokesman for the center Riyadh Al-Ashqar stated that the Israeli prison administrations deliberately show their disrespect for the sanctity of the holy month of Ramadan through imposing further restrictions on the prisoners and killing their joy at fasting and worshiping during this month.

Ashqar added that the Israeli jailers intensified their search raids during Ramadan on the rooms of the prisoners in all prisons under flimsy pretexts and attacked prisoners a few days ago in Eichel jail, where several detainees were reportedly injured and four others were locked up in solitary confinement.
The spokesman said that the Palestinian prisoners in different jails demanded the prison administrations to improve their incarceration conditions during the holy month, but their requests were declined.

He affirmed that the prisoners have been served deliberately bad meals since the start of the holy month, forcing many of them to buy their food from the internal canteens, which, in turn, raised their prices for the Ramadan needs.
