IPS impose strict restrictions on Palestinian prisoners

March 27, 2019 3:42 P.M. (Updated: April 3, 2019 10:24 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli Prison Services (IPS) imposed strict restrictions on dozens of Palestinian Hamas-affiliated prisoners, accusing them of taking part in the recent developments inside Israeli prisons.

Hebrew-language news outlets reported that IPS imposed strict restrictions on 74 Hamas-affiliated prisoners inside the Negev prison, and 96 prisoners in the Ketziot prison for taking part in protests inside jails.

Fines up to 250,000 ILS ($68,785.00) were also imposed on prisoners by being cut of their monthly “cantina” money.

Restrictions also included banning visits, banning prisoners from going out to the prison’s yard and transferring some prisoners to solitary confinements.

According to Hebrew-language news sites, the restrictions were imposed for 7 days.

Ninety Palestinian prisoners held at section 3 of the Negev prison, in southern Israel, were handcuffed to their beds overnight on Monday, following raids in different sections of the prison that left hundreds of Palestinian prisoners injured after Hamas-affiliated prisoners stabbed two Israeli prison guards.
