BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Minister of Prisoners' Affairs Issa Qaraqe said that a unit from the Israeli prison administration on Wednesday "brutally assaulted" a Palestinian inmate in Rimon prison.
Qaraqe told Ma'an that the Israeli forces raided Rimon prison and that the situation remains "tense," without providing further details.
Similar incidents are often reported in Rimon.
On Dec. 31, Israeli guards in Rimon prison raided a section of the prison overnight and moved all Palestinian prisoners, a rights group said.
The Palestinian Prisoners' Society said that Israeli officers assaulted the inmates and took them to an unknown destination.
