NABLUS, (PIC)-- Ex-detainee Sabrin Abu Amara, recently released from Hasharon prison, said that the female prisoners in this jail are living in harsh incarceration conditions in the holy month of Ramadan.
Abu Amara told the prisoners’ center for studies that the tension between the prisoners and the prison administration in Hasharon escalated after they prevented jailers from conducting a search in their section last week.
She added that the prison administration banned prison visits during Ramadan especially for Hamas female prisoners who were not allowed to see their children and families.
The ex-detainee also noted that there is no a schedule for providing food during the month of Ramadan, adding that the food served is very poor that it is not fit to eat.
With regard to the 19-month-old child Yousuf Al-Zak, the ex-detainee said that the prison administration allowed the child and his mother Fatima to stay all day in the corridor outside the cell.
Abu Amara had spent six consecutive years in prison and was released last week from Hasharon jail.
In another related context, the Palestinian Prisoners' Society said on Sunday that female prisoner Najwa Abdelghani from the village of Saida in Tulkarem disclosed serious violations committed by Israeli occupation forces (IOF) during her detention.
According to the club, prisoner Abdelghani revealed that the IOF troops stormed her home on 21/7/2009 in Saida and forced her family out in a barbaric way before kidnapping her along with her brother.
She was then taken to Al-Sharon prison and locked her up with Israeli convicts in one cell for two days before transferring her to Jalama prison for 14 days.
She said that in Jalama prison, she was exposed to intensive interrogation amid curses and yells by different Israeli officers and everyday passed was worse than the earlier one which made her eventually ill and emaciated from lack of eating and sleeping hours.
After 14 days, the prisoner was transferred in chains to the prison of Damon near Jalama, according the club.
In another context, the forum of Palestinian journalists strongly denounced Israel for kidnapping more journalists and called on the Arab and international media and human rights organizations to seriously and urgently intervene to get them released.
The IOF troops kidnapped at dawn Saturday journalists Mohamed Mona and Gofran Zamel after storming their homes in Nablus.
The forum said that those journalists are added to others previously detained in Israeli jails.
