JENIN, (PIC)– A human rights group has held the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) responsible for the life of two hunger strikers whose health condition had sharply deteriorated.
Muhjat Al-Quds group said in a statement on Monday that Thaer Halahle and Bilal Dhiab have lost 18 kilograms of their weight after 49 days of hunger strike.
It said that both detainees were protesting their administrative custody without trial or charge, describing their incarceration as arbitrary.
The group noted that both prisoners were suffering low blood sugar, low blood pressure, pain in the kidney and stomach, difficulty in walking, and weakness in their eyesight, and repeatedly pass out.
Muhjat Al-Quds urged human rights groups and the Red Cross to swiftly intervene to secure their release and save their lives especially when no charges were leveled against them.
