This prison is located South of the line extending between Tulkaram and Netanya on the old road leading to Hadera. This prison was built in the 70s specifically due to clashes between Arabs and Jews. Today, the prison consists of three sections: one section for children designated as security prisoners and another for children designated as criminal prisoners. The third section is specially designated for Palestinian women prisoners. The prison is surrounded by a high wall that reaches 3 meters in height and includes four high watch towers. The prison previously used to contain a high number of Palestinian children under 16 years of age amongst a number of Jewish criminal prisoners, which endangered their lives and made them vulnerable to harassment and violation by the criminal prisoners.
