Israeli lawmaker calls to reduce water supply to Palestinian prisoners
The prisoners” study center has warned Thursday of the adverse call of the extremist rightist Israeli Knesset member Dani Danoun to reduce water supply to Palestinian prisoners in the Israeli jails.
The fanatic Israeli official alleged that Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails leave water taps open during night time with the aim to “harm the Israeli economy”.
In a statement it issued Thursday and a copy of which was obtained by the PIC, the center described Danoun allegations as “old”, adding that every time the Israeli community suffer shortage in water supplies they use such allegations in order to tighten the grip on the Palestinian captives, and to make their life more difficult.
Moreover, the center affirmed that the captives had been suffering from a shortage of water supplies for a long time, but the Israeli prison authorities paid no attention to their suffering, urging the IOA not to listen to such extremist calls that would be counter-productive especially after the Israeli prison authorities reduced bread rations for the Palestinian detainees.
