The Palestinian Prisoners’ Club said representatives of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails have met with the prison administration in Ramon Prison and demanded an end to the ongoing unprecedented assaults against female detainees including the solitary confinement of three prisoners.

The organisation said in a statement yesterday that the representatives presented, during the meeting, their demands, most notably stopping the assault against the female prisoners and ending the isolation of Shoroq Doyat, Marah Bakir and Mona Kaadan.

According to the statement, only when the demands are met, will an in-depth dialogue continue regarding the female prisoners’ issue.

The Israeli prison administration is reported to have accepted the prisoners’ conditions, however there is no information to confirm when the isolation of the female prisoners will come to an end.
