The Israel Prison Service requested assistance from the Israeli Special Forces to crack down on the prisoners, who banged on their cell doors in protest, chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’.
“The Israel Prison Service is threatening the prisoners with a wide-scale attack on them and spraying gas inside their cells,” the PPC shared.
