Bahrain Mirror: Security forces at the Jw Central Prison continued their siege of Building 7 in an attempt to suppress the protest and sit-in of political prisoners against the isolation policy pursued by the prison administration. The Al-Wefaq Society affirmed, in a post on the formerly Twitter "X" platform on Saturday, March 16, 2024, that "the prisoners refused to enter their cells in protest against the prison administration's failure to fulfill its promises to end the isolation and its decision to isolate new prisoners."

The Society pointed out that "the inmates hung banners on the external windows of the building demanding an end to isolation, and they performed Takbir (shouting Allahu Akbar) at night and staged a sit-in in the corridors of the building," drawing attention to the fact that "the prison administration prevented the prisoners from contacting their families, imposed new restrictions on them in response to their protest, summoned armed mercenaries, and surrounded the building."
