RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Heavy sanctions have been imposed on Palestinians held at the Israeli Hadarim prison after mobile phones were seized during search raids.
Sanctions were harsh, the Palestinian Prisoner Society said. They included crackdowns and isolation as well as the closure of the public laundry, reduction in recreation time, and restrictions on movement within the prison.
The PPS also received complaints of surprise night inspections and strip searches where the prisoners' property is left damaged.
The prisoners emphasized that they would not surrender to the sanctions and would take appropriate action.
Relatives of prisoners held in Hadarim have complained of not knowing their prisoners' whereabouts following the crackdown. The prison has refused to disclose that information.
