New series of punishments against Palestinian prisoners

June 20, 2014 11:24 A.M. (Updated: June 20, 2014 11:24 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli Prison Services have begun a series of punishments against more than 5,000 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons in response to the disappearance of three Israeli teens in Hebron last week.

A report by the Palestinian Ministry of Prisoner Affairs said that Israeli Prisons Services have determined a series of new rules against Palestinian prisoners as punishment for the disappearance, with the approval of the Israeli minister of internal security.

The punishments include:

1. Allowing visits only once every two months for Hamas-affiliated prisoners, and possibly all prisoners.

2. Shutting the canteen and lowering the allowed amount of money from 1000 NIS ($290) a month to 400 ILS ($116).

3. Prisoners allowed to go out into the prison yard for an hour in the morning and an hour in evening, instead of eight hours, in addition to applying a search device at the gate of the yard.

4. Hamas-affiliated prisoners are not allowed to receive newspapers.

5. Hamas-affiliated prisoners are not allowed to watch TV.

6. Guards are allowed to search prisoners while they are in the prison yard.

7. Non-hunger striking prisoners are not allowed to interact with hunger-striking prisoners.

More than 5,300 Palestinians are currently being held in Israeli jails. Of these, more than 200 are being held indefinitely without charge or trial as part of a procedure called administrative detention.

Around 125 prisoners have been on hunger strike for nearly 60 days in protest against their administrative detention.
