Head of the Prisoners and Former Prisoners’ Affairs Committee, Qadri Abu Baker, told the Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa News and Information Agency that two Palestinian prisoners, identified as Islam Yusri Wishahi and Udayy Adel Salem, were critically injured.
The Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) warned of the gravity of the incident, holding the Israeli Prison Services entirely responsible for assaults against prisoners.
There are some 1,300 Palestinian prisoners in different sections of the Negev prison.
