RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Israeli prison guards stormed the cells of Palestinian prisoners on Friday, prompting clashes as the detainees hit back, the Palestinian Prisoners Society said.

The clash in Shata prison, in northern Israel, was prompted by a cell raid of more than 70 officers, the society said.

Some prisoners fought back against the guards with chairs, it continued.

The prison authorities have closed one section of the jail and moved three Palestinian detainees into isolation, the society said, condemning Israel's treatment of Palestinian prisoners.

Israel hold 4,600 Palestinians in its jails, including 194 children and seven women, according to latest figures from prisoners group Addameer.
