Nafha Prison

This old building is located in the southeastern desert area in Palestine. It is located 100 km from Beersheba and 200km away from Jerusalem. Since 1980, the prison was used especially for security prisoners, and it is considered one of the most harsh and severe of the occupation prisons. That comes as no surprise knowing that it was renovated solely for the intended purpose of imprisoning leaders among Palestinian prisoners to subject them to gradual death and to isolate them from the rest of the other prisons. And the prison consists of two buildings: one old and one new (Ramon prison) which are surrounded by extremely intensified security. Due to it being a “desert prison” it is extremely cold during the winter and extremely hot during the summer. The prison also contains a section for isolation.
