Resistance reduced the pressures on detainees in occupation jails
Resistance reduced the pressures on detainees in occupation jails

GAZA, (PIC)-- The Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip and the resistance rockets reduced the pressures on Palestinian detainees in Israeli jails, particularly in Israeli prisons in the southern occupied Palestine because of the jailers' concentration on the current events.

Since the firing of resistance rockets on 1948-occupied Palestine, the Israeli prison services stopped cell phone jammers in order not to affect the radars and communications equipment in light of the Israeli state of emergency.

The detainees pointed out that this allowed them to use cell phones without Israeli persecution, in addition to the lack of jamming devices disrupting their communication, from which they were deprived for a long time.

The prisoners added that the Israeli jailers are in state of permanent alert, which represents the Israeli trauma by the ferocity of the resistance responses.
