Gaza - Ma'an - Seven Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails were moved into isolation cells during the past week, the Center for Detainee Studies reported Wednesday, calling the move punitive and unnecessary.

Director of the Gaza-based center Rifat Hamdouna identified the seven as Tarek Izz Ad-Din, Abd Obaid, Yahya Ighbaria, Mohammed Daboos, Nasser Oais, Majid Al-Masri, and Moatasem Yassine. He said it was unclear how long they would be forced to stay in the cells.

Hamdouna called the move a violation of the rights of the prisoners under the Geneva Conventions governing prisoners of war, and called on human rights institutions to intervene and ensure the men's safety.
