IPA throws 4 Palestinian female prisoners in isolation, transfers others

The Israeli prisons authority (IPA) moved 16 Palestinian female prisoners from Talmund jail to Ramle prison and threw four others in solitary confinement after allegedly discovering a tunnel that was being dug by those inmates to escape prison, legal sources revealed.

The lawyer of the Palestinian prisoner’s club said after visiting the Talmund jail a couple of days ago that the prisoners denied the escape story, describing it as fabricated and meant to impose more quelling measures on the prisoners.

The IPA claimed on 12/9/2006 that two prisoners had tried to escape from prison through digging a tunnel under the tiles of the room number 16 in Talmund jail.
