RAMALLAH, PALESTINOW.COM — A Palestinian prisoner on Sunday evening was able to stab two Israeli soldiers in the Negev prison after special forces stormed cells and physically assaulted inmates.
One of the soldiers suffered serious injuries, while a second suffered a light injury.
According to Asra Media Center, a prisoner stabbed two soldiers in section 3 of the Negev jail.
The Center added that 15 Palestinian prisoners suffered injuries in violent clashes with Israeli forces in the jail, noting that helicopters landed outside the prison to evacuate the wounded soldiers.
Spokesman for the Palestinian Prisoner Center for Studies Riyad al-Ashqar explained that the events started when Israeli forces violently stormed section 4 of the prison and transferred its inmates to sections 3 and 7 and assaulted them.

He affirmed that 15 prisoners in the jail suffered different injuries, three of them seriously, after Israeli forces intensively fired tear gas and live and rubber bullets at them.
