RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — The Palestinian Authority Minister of Prisoner Affairs warned Saturday that detainees in Israeli jails may launch mass hunger strike action if their conditions do not improve.

Issa Qaraqe said the situation in Israeli jails could “blow up at any time” if prison conditions remain the same, a statement said.

Prisoners are threatening to launch mass hunger strike action in April in protest against abusive practices by Israel’s prison administration, which has stripped prisoners of all their rights, Qaraqe added.

Around 2,000 prisoners joined a mass hunger strike launched in April 2012 to demand fairer prison conditions.

“On Torture” is an edited volume of essays by Palestinian, Israeli and international legal and medical experts and practitioners based on presentations that they gave during a workshop held in Jerusalem in April 2011 entitled, “Securing Accountability for Torture and Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment (CIDT) in Israel: New Trends and Comparative Lessons”.

The essayists explore the history of torture in Israel, the daily challenges that practitioners face in seeking accountability for torture and CIDT in Israel, and the changing face of torture.
