At least 100 Palestinian prisoners sustained injuries on Monday during confrontations with the Zionist guards in the “Israeli” occupation’s Ofer Prison in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian Prisoners Club Association reported.

The NGO said in a press statement that the prisoners were injured as a result of the successive repression and assaults of the “Israeli” services against the prisoners on Monday.

The Zionist guards of the prison used rubber-coated metal gunshots, tear gas canisters, percussion bombs, clubs and dogs, the statement added.

"Most of the prisoners were injured by rubber-coated metal gunshots and many of them were referred to “Israeli” hospitals," with most of them were brought back to the prison and 20 remained for treatment.

The association warned that "such an aggressive assault on the prisoners is brutal and hasn't happened in ten years."

The statement called on the international organizations to immediately intervene to put an end to the brutal and aggressive escalation against the prisoners.

According to an official Palestinian figure, the Ofer Prison has around 1,200 Palestinian detainees out of 6,000 Palestinians imprisoned in the Zionist occupation’s prisons, jails and detention camps.
