BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A special forces unit on Saturday raided sectors 1 and 5 in Rimon prison in Israel, a Palestinian official said.

Issa Qaraqe told Ma’an that a unit raided the prison and fired tear gas at prisoners. He added that detainees were protesting the prison administration’s decision to prohibit visits and seize electronic devices.

Qaraqe said that long-term hunger striker Samer Issawi was in critical condition. He added that the ministry and the Red Cross were negotiating a visit for Issawi who was banned from receiving visitors four days earlier.
