Sources: Palestinian inmates to launch protest measures in response to IOF repression

Hundreds of Palestinian political detainees in Israeli jails are set to launch a series of protests in response to the Israel Prison Service’s continuous repression of them, according to the Palestinian Authority’s Detainees Affairs Commission.

The Commission said in a statement that the prisoners will take action in protest of the recent crackdown on many of them following the jailbreak of six Palestinian freedom fighters from Gilboa Prison last month, who were ultimately recaptured.

Solitary confinement, torture, numerous interrogations, and denial of access to vital services are among the Israeli harsh techniques against the inmates, according to the Commission.

“To avenge the inmates, the Israeli occupation authorities use a system of arbitrary procedures and laws. The Israel Prison Service has been given [official Israeli] permission to deal with the convicts as it deems fit, according to the statement.

The Commission asked all local and international bodies and organizations, particularly the International Committee of the Red Cross, to intervene immediately to visit solitary confinement prisoners and to work tirelessly to protect them and defend their rights in all forums.

IOF rejects release appeal for hunger-striking prisoner Kayed al-Fasfous

An appeal to release Palestinian detainee Kayed al-Fasfous, who has been on hunger strike for 81 days in protest of his unfair incarceration without charge or trial, was denied today by an Israeli court in Ofer, west of Ramallah.

According to the Palestinian Authority’s Detainees Affairs Commission, al-Fasfous’ health has deteriorated significantly as a result of his hunger strike, and his legal team plans to challenge his detention order to the Israeli High Court.

Al-Fasfous is one of six Palestinian political prisoners on hunger strike for several weeks in protest of their continued detention without accusation or trial. Meqdad Qawasmeh (on a 74-day hunger strike), Alaa Al-Araj (65 days), Hesham Abu Hawwash (48 days), Shadi Abu Akr (40 days), and Hasan Shawka are the other five captives (14 days).

Administrative detention, a widely denounced Israeli policy, allows Palestinians to be held without accusation or trial for renewable periods of three to six months, based on concealed information that even a detainee’s lawyer is denied access to.

Currently, Israel holds around 500 Palestinians in administrative detention, which is illegal under international law. The majority of those held in administrative detention are previous prisoners who spent years in prison for resisting the Israeli occupation.

Thousands of Palestinians have been held in administrative detention by Israel for extended periods of time without being tried, without being informed of the charges against them, and without being allowed to examine the evidence.

Palestinian inmates have gone on indefinite hunger strikes to protest their illegal administrative detention and seek an end to this policy, which is illegal under international law.

In clashes on Mt. Sbeih, near Beta village, south of Nablus city, tenths of Palestinians were injured by Israeli rubber bullets, according to Ahmed Jebril, emergency director of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society in Nablus city, northern West Bank.

Four persons were hurt as a result of the fights, according to him.

Medical staff also treated seven people in Beit Dajan hamlet, east of Nablus, who had been struck by Israeli rubber bullets, according to him.
An Israeli drone was seen firing tear gas canisters in the village of Beita, according to a video.

The drone crashed owing to a technical fault, according to the Israeli Broadcasting Corporation network.
The Israeli occupation fired live bullets, rubber-coated metal bullets, and teargas canisters after the weekly Friday prayers to disperse an anti-settlement gathering in the village of Kafr Qaddum, east of Qalqilya, according to Murad Eshteiwi, the village’s coordinator of the Popular Resistance Committees.

He went on to say that a rubber-coated bullet injured a Palestinian child in the leg.

Meanwhile, skirmishes erupted between Palestinians and the Israeli occupation in the southern occupied West Bank following Friday prayers in the Bab al-Zawiya sector of central Hebron city, where dozens were treated for suffocation caused by Israeli tear gas canisters.

Palestinians hold marches against settlements and the separation wall every Friday in a number of West Bank villages and cities.

According to Israeli and Palestinian estimates, about 650,000 Israelis live in 164 settlements and 116 outposts in the West Bank, including occupied Jerusalem.

Illegal Israeli settlers cut down on Sunday  dozens of olive trees in the village of Burin in the occupied West Bank region of Nablus according to local sources.

The villagers were astonished to learn in the morning that settlers from the nearby Israeli colonial town of Yitzhar had hacked down dozens of their olive trees, according to Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors Israeli settlement activity in the area.

The incident occurs as Palestinian farmers around the country prepare for the annual olive harvest season, which begins in early October each year.

Settler violence against Palestinian people has increased in previous years during the vital olive harvest season, despite being practically everyday.

For thousands of Palestinian homes in the occupied territories, the olive harvest is one of the most significant seasons, as the season’s success determines their income.
