RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian Prisoners and Former Prisoners Affairs' Committee said that on Thursday a large number of Israeli suppression forces of the Israeli Prison Services (IPS), stormed "section 3" of the Israeli Gelbou prison.

The committee confirmed that IPS stormed the section conducting "unjustified repressive inspections."

The committee explained that the raid led to increased tensions inside the prison, after Israeli suppression forces assaulted several Palestinian prisoners and searched through the prisoners' personal belongings.

Israeli suppression forces have regularly used overnight raids, confiscation of personal belongings and forcible prison transfers to suppress resistance among Palestinian prisoners.

A small fraction of Palestinians detained by Israel are held inside the occupied West Bank territory, while the vast majority are transferred to prisons inside Israel, limiting their access to their families, legal support, and communities, and also stripping detainees of their basic rights under the Fourth Geneva Convention.
