Sheikh Saeed Abdul Aziz Arma, 52, was also arrested after raiding his house in Ramallah. After his picture spread on social media, holding a slingshot and throwing stones at the occupation soldiers in defense of the lands of his village, which the occupation seeks to steal and confiscate.

The Center also monitored one case of arrest from the Gaza Strip since the beginning of this year for a young man while trying to infiltrate from the northern Gaza Strip into the occupied interior. He was released after being detained for hours and interrogated.

Al-Ashqar indicated that the most prominent event during the new year is the spread of the Corona virus among the prisoners significantly, and the increase in the number of infected prisoners from 140 prisoners at the end of last year, to 236 prisoners, and this number is expected to increase as a result of the presence of dozens of prisoners who had contact, and samples were taken from them, and no results showed After examining them, in addition to the fact that the occupation is manipulating the real numbers of wounded prisoners, because it is the only source of information about the conditions and preparation of prisoners who are injured in isolation in special departments.

While the state of tension, tension and anxiety still hangs over all prisons after the huge increase in the number of injured and the transfer of the disease from one prison to another, especially after the deterioration of the health of the prisoner "Basil Makhlouf" from Tulkarm as a result of his infection with Corona and his entry into the stage of danger and his transfer to intensive care at Soroka Hospital, And the occupation is still stalling in agreeing to give the prisoners the Coronavirus vaccine.

Al-Ashqar indicated that during the past two weeks the health of many prisoners had deteriorated and reached a dangerous point due to the recklessness of their lives and the continuing policy of medical negligence against them. Follow-up of his case, where he has been suffering for several months, severe pain in the abdomen, and he has been detained since 2002, and the occupation refuses to release him even though he has only several months left of his 20-year sentence.

The prisoners also continued the repression and abuse of prisoners by attacking the sections of the heavily armed special units, destroying their private belongings and confiscating many of them, the most dangerous of which was in Ofer prison, where a number of prisoners suffocated as a result of gas spraying on them during incursions into sections (16, 22, 21), in addition to To the withdrawal of all electrical appliances from the prisoners ’sections, which prompted them to protest the return of meals.
