A day before going on strike, Israeli prison forces raid cells of Palestinian prisoners at Asqalan

Ramallah (QNN) – Israeli prison forces raided this morning cells of 46 Palestinian political prisoners held at Asqalan prison in the south of occupied Palestine, searched the cells and ransacked them, according to the Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS).

It said the raid came a day before the prisoners were set to go on hunger strike to protest such raids and other punitive measures against them by the Israel Prison Service (IPS).

The Palestinian prisoners were in negotiations with the Asqalan prison administration to stop these night raids and assaults against the prisoners and to also demand better conditions in the cells and in general.

However, when negotiation failed to bring results few days ago, the prisoners decided to go on hunger strike starting tomorrow to press for their demands.
