The Israeli Prison Services (IPS) has decided to reduce food amounts 
served to Palestinian prisoners inside Israeli jails, as well as other 
services, Palestinian Prisoner Club (PPC) revealed on Monday.

Israel has been intensifying a crackdown on Palestinian inmates over the 
past two years. In a statement, the PPC declared that this step is part 
of Israeli Minister Gilad Erdan’s plan, aimed at worsening conditions 
for Palestinian prisoners, and canceling all the achievementsgained 
throughout the years.

The PPC also stated that Israel is to reduce the number of TV channels 
allowed for the prisoners from ten to seven, to lower the number of 
loaves of bread from five to four, and to withdraw cookers and 40 items 
from their purchases.

In addition, the IPS will also cut down on the amount of meat, water and 
books allowed. It will offer only boiled eggs, ban the use of colored 
blankets, restrict movement among prison departments, decrease the time 
of breaks, minimize the number of family visits and change factional 

Meanwhile, the prisoners stressed that they are currently laying out a 
resistance plan against the IPS over these measures, which are gradually 
being implemented.

/“/The collective efforts at stifling their voices, even to the point of 
murder through torture and medical negligence, is provoking an oblivion 
which is tantamount to a loss of identity, at least when it comes to 
perception from the outside,” wrote renowned journalist and author 
Ramona Wadi.

/“/ With the exception of Palestinians in close proximity with Israeli 
forces, who spares a thought for Palestinian prisoners before they are 
turned into temporary headlines by Israel’s colonial violence?,” Wadi added.
