Selin ATAY-TDO- Israeli authorities have begun imposing new restrictions on the daily lives of Palestinian prisoners.
Israel’s prison authorities have imposed restrictions on Palestinian detainees, cancelling previous agreed rights, the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) said.
In a statement, the PPS said the authorities have decided to decrease the number of loaves of bread from five to four and television channels from 10 to seven. They also decided to withdraw cookers and tens of items from the prison’s canteen.
Israeli authorities heavily condemned these new practices.
Previously, Israel’s prison authorities placed cameras on wards, transported many detainees to other prisons and imposed pressures on detainees.
Over 5,500 Palestinians - including 200 children and 42 women - are currently languishing in prisons located throughout Israel, according to official Palestinian figures.
