(In Palestine Today)- “13 new cases of Coronavirus were recorded among the prisoners in Section 3 of Ktzi’ot Prison to increase the number which was registered at the end of the last week to reach 44,” Palestinian Society Prisoner’s Club said on Tuesday.
The continued recording of cases among the prisoners warns of what is more dangerous, especially as the prison administration lists false news in terms of sample results, as well as the health conditions of the infected prisoners.
Despite the continuous demands of the need to release sick and elderly prisoners in particular with the escalating risks from the spread of the epidemic, however, the Israeli authorities continue to carry out more daily arrests and dozens of administrative arrests. The last December witnessed an increase in the percentage of administrative detention orders issued against prisoners.
information are received about quarantining dozens of prisoners working in the prisoner wards, specifically in Raymond prison, bearing in mind that the prisoners are the first source of the virus infection reaching the prisoners.
According to the follow-up since the beginning of the spread of the epidemic to this day, 184 Coronavirus cases were recorded among prisoners, the highest of which was in Gilboa prison in November 2020.
It is worth noting that the Israeli prisons administration has worked, since the beginning of the epidemic, to transform the epidemic into re-abuse of the prisoners right through several measures that aim to impose more isolation and control over the prisoners, which exacerbated the difficulty of detention conditions.
