RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli Prison Services have begun a series of punishments against more than 5,000 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons in response to the disappearance of three Israeli teens in Hebron last week.

A report by the Palestinian Ministry of Prisoner Affairs said that Israeli Prisons Services have determined a series of new rules against Palestinian prisoners as punishment for the disappearance, with the approval of the Israeli minister of internal security.

The punishments include:

1. Allowing visits only once every two months for Hamas-affiliated prisoners, and possibly all prisoners.
2. Shutting the canteen and lowering the allowed amount of money from 1000 NIS ($290) a month to 400 ILS ($116).
3. Prisoners allowed to go out into the prison yard for an hour in the morning and an hour in evening, instead of eight hours, in addition to applying a search device at the gate of the yard.
4. Hamas-affiliated prisoners are not allowed to receive newspapers.
5. Hamas-affiliated prisoners are not allowed to watch TV.
6. Guards are allowed to search prisoners while they are in the prison yard.
7. Non-hunger striking prisoners are not allowed to interact with hunger-striking prisoners.

More than 5,300 Palestinians are currently being held in Israeli jails. Of these, more than 200 are being held indefinitely without charge or trial as part of a procedure called administrative detention.

Around 125 prisoners have been on hunger strike for nearly 60 days in protest against their administrative detention.

No doubt about it, the lunatics are in control of Israel - the 'funny farm!'

Israel gives prisoners more rights than are required by international conventions due to its Jewish ethics. Still, these prisoners are continuing to work to destroy the state of Israel. so I ask you, would Arab countries provide these extra privileges for a Jewish prisoner who is guilty of acts of war against their nations? Are the Jewish kidnapped boys allowed to see anybody or read newspapers or see daylight or exercise? Hamas is working against the interest of the Palestinian people.
