Israeli forces injured more than 100 Palestinian prisoners at Israel’s Ofer military prison near the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah in a series of raids since Sunday.
Several Israeli military units raided two other prisons since then, Nafha prison in the Naqab region in southern Israel and Gilboa prison in the north, after allegedly receiving an intelligence tip that members of Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian political and resistance organization, had mobile phones, Israeli daily Haaretz reported.

Two weeks ago the Zionist lobby targeted civil rights activist Angela Davis for her support of the Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions movement (BDS).

Two and a half years after the 2016 referendum vote to leave the European Union (EU), the British capitalist class is mired in crisis.

A HEXit ON THE EUROPEAN WORKING CLASS
One of the strongest arguments used by the hard Brexiteers is that the decision to leave Europe has not collapsed the UK’s economy as many had predicted. The reason why this has not happened is because Big Capital is not convinced Britain will be leaving the EU, which means leaving the customs union and/or the single market. Three months from the supposed exit date the political process of leaving is stalemated. Many “Leavers”now recognise they have been stitched up. Like surgeons facing a pair of mature Siamese twins, the politicians on both sides do not know where to make the first incision or even if the twins will survive the operation because they share so many common organs.
