Israeli suppression forces raid Ashkelon prison

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

The committee confirmed that Israeli suppression forces have recently increased raids into Israeli prisons, in which they assault Palestinian prisoners, search through their personal belongings and confiscate or damage the belongings.

There are currently 50 Palestinian prisoners held in the Israeli Ashkelon prison.

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.
