Jerusalem24 – The Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners Affairs Commission said that the prisoners’ movement in the Israeli prisons, with all its factions, decided to start escalating steps, in light of the unprecedented Israeli attack on the prisoners, which the allege amounts to “war crimes.”
The commission explained, in a press statement, that these steps come in support of the striking prisoners and the prisoners of the “Islamic Jihad”, who are subject to systematic punishments, such as isolation, and torture.
