A number of Israeli cabinet ministers are planning to ask the committee tasked with probing the Israeli Prisons Service over last week's jailbreak to put more restrictions on Palestinian prisoners.

Al Hodhod news network reported that Israeli Communication Minister Yoaz Hendel intends to put this on the agenda of the cabinet's next meeting. The conditions under which Palestinian prisoners are held inside Israeli jails will then be discussed, it added.

It is expected that Agriculture Minister Oded Forer will support tightening the conditions under which Palestinians are detained.

Deputy Minister of Public Security Yoav Segalovitz is also expected to call for similar discussions.
