70 prisoners from Nafha sent to different jails

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Some 70 hunger-striking prisoners from Nafha prison were sent to several different jails recently in what they say is an attempt to isolate them from each other and the rest of the prisoners, the Prisoner's Society told Ma'an.

A lawyer with the advocacy group who visited the Nafha prison in Mitzpe Ramon in southern Israel on Thursday said that the prison is "tense" and that punishments against hunger-striking prisoners are being meted out "continuously."

The lawyer requested that prisoners urgently appeal to international institutions, especially since the strike issue was not being solved within the prisons services.

Prisoners are concerned that the strike will deteriorate further as the Islamic month of fasting Ramadan approaches.
