The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) said on Thursday that a large number of Occupation Forces’ special repression units belonging “Al-Yamam”, had stormed section 3 of the Gilboa prison.

In a statement, the organization explained that the incursion led to chaos and tension inside the prison,with attacks on a number of prisoners and tampering with their personal belongings.

A state of high tension still prevails in prison, according to the PFLP.

There are nearly 6,500 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, around 600 of them in Galboa prison, which is known for its overcrowded cells.
