Tension escalates in Negev prison following Fuqaha’s assassination

Negev gevangenis escalaties

Mohjat al-Quds Foundation said on Sunday that tension escalated in the Negev prison after the Palestinian prisoners organized a ceremony in mourning for martyr Mazen Fuqaha, an ex-prisoner.

In a letter sent to Mohjat al-Quds, the prisoners said that the prison administration forcibly ended the ceremony and prevented them from doing any activity against the assassination of Fuqaha.

The administration also put the Islamic Jihad prisoner Abdullah Tayeh in addition to three Hamas prisoners, whose names were not disclosed, in solitary confinement, according to Mohjat al-Quds.

The administration ordered the transfer of the prisoners of section 5, which includes prisoners affiliated with Hamas and the Islamic Jihad, to section 22. However, the prisoners refused warning that the situation might escalate and direct confrontations with the prison forces might ensue.

Massive crowds in Gaza city on Saturday laid to rest the Qassam Brigades commander Mazen Fuqaha who was murdered by unknown gunmen in Tal al-Hawa neighborhood south of Gaza city.
