Detainees: Nafha prison among worst

Gaza – Ma'an – Detainees at Israel's Nafha jail say their conditions are among the worst in the Israeli prison establishment, the Husam detainees center reported Thursday.

Prisoners sent a message on Wednesday night, Husam reported, telling officials that sick detainees are neglected and others are transferred from one prison to another.

The Husam center said detainees are consistently complaining about poor treatment in the prisons, especially the Nafha prison, but rarely receive the backing and support they need.
