The Prime Minister said, during his meeting with a number of the families of the prisoners in his office in Ramallah on Saturday morning: “We will send a message to the International Red Cross to ask them to work to release the prisoners and ensure the safety of those in the prisons of the occupation, and make sure that the prison administration takes into account the general safety measures of our prisoners, especially Reducing overcrowding in these prisons. “

He stressed the importance of the Prisoners’ Authority in following up the safety of more than 6 thousand prisoners held by the occupation in its prisons, through legal and humanitarian frameworks.

According to the prisoners’ institutions, up to the end of February 2020, the number of prisoners in the occupation prisons amounted to about 5,000.

Prisoners ‘institutions have confirmed that the prisoners’ sections in the occupation prisons do not have the lowest measures to prevent infection from Corona virus. 

It indicated that the prison administration did not provide any sterilization or cleaning materials that could assist the prisoners in protecting themselves, especially as it recently reduced the cleaning materials.
