AL-KHALIL, (PIC)-- Palestinian lawmaker Mohamed Attal said that the Hamas-affiliated detainees imprisoned by the Palestinian Authority (PA) in Jericho prison are separated from each other in very small solitary cells.
MP Attal added in a press release on Friday that the incarceration conditions in this PA jail are much worse than Israeli prisons, and appealed to human rights organizations to intervene to end the suffering of Hamas prisoners there.
In a separate incident, the PA security militias stormed on Friday the Mosque of Abrar in Al-Khalil city and kidnapped Sheikh Jibril Al-Jiyawi and his son Muntaser from inside the mosque as they were performing their evening prayers.
Eyewitnesses said that the militias took the father and his son to the preventive security headquarters in the city and then ransacked their home.
The militias also kidnapped seven other Palestinians affiliated with Hamas in the cities of Nablus, Tulkarem, Ramallah, Jenin, and Salfit, according to local sources on Saturday.
