Detainees groups protest Israel prison treatment

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A detainees group in Nablus said Tuesday that Palestinians in Israeli jails will protest their treatment in the coming days.

The jailed Palestinians, in Israel's southern Ramon prison, said the prison administration had stripped them in order to damage their emotional health, and put one detainee, named as Mohammed Dwekat, in solitary confinement when he refused to cooperate.

The prisoners "will take serious steps against the Israeli prison administration," the center said.

The detainees group said that there are over 600 Palestinians in Ramon prison alone.

Also Tuesday, a detainees center in Tubas welcomed the release of five locals from Israeli jail.

Ahmad Ma’mon Draghma, Ahmad Hussam Al-Deen, Moath Issa, Hamza Odah and Osama Mahasna, completed prison terms a week earlier, the center said, and attributed their eventual release to campaigning by families of the detainees and human rights organizations.
