                  Abu Hanish</a>, a leader of the prisoners of the
                Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, was
                transferred into solitary confinement in Nafha prison
                and accused of possession of “incitement materials;”
                this came after the earlier denial of books and other
                materials to the PFLP prisoners, who pledged escalating
                protests if Abu Hanish was not released from isolation.</p>
              <p>The isolation of Abu Hanish came as another prisoner,
                Ramzi Obeid of Fateh, was <a

                  released from isolation</a> as originally ordered on 1
                January. In Nafha prison, 13 prisoners from Fateh were
                isolated and three prisoners were injured and sprayed
                with tear gas when their sections in the prison were
                stormed by special forces and sprayed with tear gas.
                Issa Qaraqe noted that the injured prisoners included
                Mansour Shreim, Thaer Hammad and Ahmed Omar. In
                addition, the director of the prison was apparently
                wounded as the Israeli occupation forces clashed with
                the prisoners. The 13 prisoners had refused to return to
                their sections in protest of the continued isolation of
                Obeid.</p>
              <p>The 13 prisoners were ordered to solitary confinement,
                were banned from family visits and each was fined 1,000
                NIS ($260 USD). Among the isolated prisoners is Mohammed
                Dahnoun, a representative of the prisoners in Section 4
                of Nafha. This came only one day after <a

                  were imposed on Fateh prisoners</a> in Ramon prison

                to turn over the bodies of Palestinians killed by
                Israeli occupation forces, in an attempt to pressure the
                Palestinian resistance group over captured Israeli

              <p>Palestinian political prisoners across all factions
                have condemned the measures and the Israeli attempt to
                segregate the prisoners by political affiliation,
                focusing on rejection of isolation and common struggle
                against repression. Spokespeople of Fateh, Islamic
                Jihad, Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of
                Palestine condemned these sanctions as an attempt to
                divide the prisoners and suppress the resistance, noting
                that the prisoners were united against these attacks and
                viewed them as attacks on all Palestinian prisoners as a
                whole, as demonstrated by the attacks on prisoners of
                all political affiliations in Nafha.</p>
