Prison service raids Nafha jail cells

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- A representative of the Palestinian prisoners society said Tuesday after visiting Nafha prison that the Israeli prison’s administration raided a cell area during dawn prayers.

Forces searched the detainees "brutally" during the raid on section 11, room six, he said.

According to the rights group, detainees went on hunger strike even after breaking the fast because the prison service had agreed not to cause any "escalations" during the Muslim holy month.
