NABLUS, (PIC)– The Israeli Prison Services (IPS) threatened unprecedented punishments against administrative prisoners in case they declare hunger strike, Tadamun Foundation said.

The Foundation’s lawyer stated that the IPS threatened to take punitive measures against administrative detainees in case they implement their planned protest steps on 25 October.

The administrative detainees urged the human rights institutions to pressure the Israeli authorities to prevent any penalties against them, the lawyer added.

The penalties include denial of family visits, placing hunger strikers in isolation, depriving them of using their electrical equipment, and preventing them from using the canteen.

The administrative prisoners have announced nearly two months ago a number of protest steps by the end of this month including boycotting of Israeli courts, declaring a hunger strike for two days per week in December, boycotting prison hospitals in January, stopping taking mediation in February, and declaring hunger strike for three days per week starting March.

The administrative detainees demanded their immediate release or being charged and tried in ordinary courts especially that they are detained administratively without charge or trial.

There are 150 administrative detainees in Israeli jails mostly liberated prisoners, 50 of them are being held at Ofer prison.
