Ofer Prison, formerly officially known as Incarceration Facility 385, is an Israeli incarceration facility located in the West Bank, between Ramallah/Beituniya and Giv'at Ze'ev. It is one of three facilities of the same nature, including the Megiddo and Ktzi'ot prisons. Ofer Prison is run by the Israel Prison Service and like the other two facilities, used to be operated by the Israel Defense Forces' Military Police Corps. When under IDF control, it was capable of holding up to 800 prisoners, both tried and those under administrative detention. As of December 2008, it holds about Palestinian 1,100 prisoners.
