Occupied Palestine (In Palestine Today)- The Palestinian Detainees Association said that the Israeli Prison Service (IPS) assaulted and severely beat female prisoners and isolated three of them.
In a statement issued today, the watchdog added that some detainees were wounded and that the IPS continues to threaten of using tear gas against them. Three detainees (Shorouq Dwayyat, Marah Bakir, and Muna Qa’dan), were put in solitary confinement.
It added that according to certain information, the IPS cut the power off, removed Hijabs of hijabi detainees, and used tear gas against the detainees. It also denied them visitations and prevented them from using the prison canteen. The detainees, in returned their meals and knocked on the cells’ doors in protest against the Israeli repression.
The new Israeli violations come after the detainees protested against a series of new restrictions against them.
