Palestinian Minister of Detainees, Issa Qaraqe’, told the Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) that a large number of soldiers broke into the detention camp, on the second day of the Al-Adha Feast, an issue that provoked the detainees.

Qaraqe’ added that fire broke out in sections 15 and 16 of the camp, and that the detainees burnt a shed while protesting the attack.

The Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) said that two detainees were mildly hurt due to smoke inhalation, and received the needed medical attention.

The PPS added that the prison administration wanted to install doors on sheds where dozens of detainees are held, and added that those sheds, even without doors, are unfit for human use, due to heat and humidity.

The Prison Administration eventually ceded to the demands of the detainees.

The detainees held the prison Warden, known as Elan, responsible for the escalation, and demanded an end to the repeated violations against them.

In related news, soldiers broke into and searched sections in Galboa’ Israeli prison, attacked several detainees, and placed several others in solitary confinement.
