Israel vows to 'worsen' conditions for Palestinian prisoners

Glad Erdan Israel's Public Security Minister has announced their plans to "worsen" conditions for Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

Glad Erdan Israel's Public Security Minister has announced their plans to "worsen" conditions for Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

He added saying these plans  includes  rationing the prisoners water supplies and reducing the number of family visits. 

 The planned moves, which are expected to come into force in the coming weeks after being approved by the Israeli cabinet, were sharply criticised by Palestinian leaders and activists who described as them as another escalation of human rights violations by Israel. 

 Erdan said the plan will also see jails removing cooking rights and limiting prisoners' access to television as well as blocking funds to the Palestinian Authority.

 The minister said that family visits had already been halted for prisoners affiliated with the Palestinian movement Hamas.

 "The plan also includes preventing members of the Knesset [Israel's parliament] from visiting Palestinian detainees," added Erdan, who last year set up a committee to make prison conditions harsher for those who "committed acts of terrorism".

 The policy of separating Hamas prisoners from those affiliated with rival Palestinian faction Fatah will also come to an end, as Erdan said that holding inmates in cells based on organisational affiliation resulted in "strengthening their organisation identity". 

 The minister also said that there will be "clear limits" on the amount of water a prisoner consumes each day, including a cap on the number of times they are allowed to shower.
