NABLUS, (PIC)-- The Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails declared their intention to take a number of steps next April in protest at the Israeli violations against their rights.
In a joint statement, the prisoners highlighted that the Israeli violations against them went too far and escalate, affirming that many of them especially those from Gaza are still deprived of their right to family visits under flimsy security pretexts, while their families are exposed to maltreatment and humiliation at military checkpoints.
The statement highlighted many of the violations committed against them in Israeli jails including the policy of medical neglect and solitary confinement.
It added that the prisoner decided, after their patience towards these abuses ran out, to move and rise up in defense of their rights and dignity.
