Megiddo prisoners appeal to Red Cross (@ICRC) to solve their clothing problem

NABLUS, (PIC)– Prisoners in Megiddo jail appealed to the Red Cross to urgently provide them with clothing or pressure their jailers to allow their families to send them clothes.

The prisoners explained, in a letter published on Sunday by Al-Ahrar center for human rights, that they are not allowed to see their families in order to get some clothes from them and already have no spare change of clothes to wear, except the ones which have been on them since their detention.

They added that whenever they have to wash the only clothes they are wearing, they wait for them to dry before using them once again.

Al-Ahrar center said that the vast majority of Megiddo prisoners who have no extra clothes were detained in the recent Israeli campaign in the West Bank, which led to the detention of more than 1,300 Palestinians since mid-June.

Director of the center Fouad Al-Khafsh noted that the Red Cross used to provide the prisoners with their clothing needs, especially underwear, but it stopped to do so lately.

Khafsh said that the Megiddo prisoners, in particular, suggested that the Red Cross could take clothes from their families and bring them to their jail in order to solve their clothing problem.
