The club explained in his statement that “there are indirect negotiations taking place inside the detention centers, and Egyptian efforts are still continuing to pressure the occupation authorities to achieve the demands of prisoners of life.”

There was no comment from Egypt or the Israel Prison Service on the nature of these negotiations.

The club said in its statement that the demands of the detainees “remove jamming devices and install public telephones in the prisoners’ sections, cancel the ban on the visit imposed on hundreds of prisoners, and lift the collective punishment imposed by the administration of detention centers on prisoners since 2014.”

It also demanded that “the transfer of prisoners to another section in which better humanitarian conditions, better conditions of detention of child prisoners, stop the policy of medical negligence and provide treatment for patients, as well as the wounded prisoners after the attacks, and end the policy of isolation.” And other demands of life.
