Palestinian prisoners inside Israeli jails continue their protests against the Israeli Prison Service (IPS) and reject new systematic restrictions imposed on them, the Palestinian Prisoners' Club (PPC) reported yesterday.
On 5 February, the Palestinian prisoners started their action against the new restrictions imposed by the IPS that started after six Palestinian prisoners escaped from a high security jail in September.
The Palestinian prisoners started disobeying prison rules, including daily security checks and staged sit-ins in the prison yards.
Immediately following the introduction of the new restrictions in September, the prisoners formed a High Follow-up Committee that consists of prisoners from all factions and it has been representing them.
According to reports, the detainees will launch a hunger-strike on 25 March if the IPS does not respond to their demands.
