Gaza, ALRAY - The Ministry of Prisoners Affairs and Ex-Prisoners in Gaza asked the international community and human rights institutions to urgently intervene to ensure the protection of thousands of Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails under the shadow of the barbaric attacks the prisoners being exposed to by the IPS.
The ministry said that it followed with great concern and condemnation the news of moving the prisoners arbitrarily in the Ramon jail on Tuesday, which comes after the prisoners intended to take escalating steps, protesting the denial by the IPS for what has been agreed upon in the second Dignity Strike.
It added that the Palestinian Captive Movement inside Israeli prisons is going to take on Wednesday a collective stance against the IPS’s arbitrary measures practiced against the prisoners and against the continued disavowal for what has been agreed on recently regarding the Jamming devices.
It noted that the prisoners will declare an open-ended strike, indicating that the IPS transferred 25 of Hamas prisoners from the Ramon jail to an unknown destiny in a bid to thwart the escalating steps intended by them.
The ministry concluded that what has happened with the prisoners in the Ramon jail is an apparent violation which contradicts with the basic principles for the treatment of prisoners adopted by international laws and conventions which underlined the protection of prisoners.
