TULKAREM, (PIC)– Abbas Al-Sayyed, commander of the Qassam Brigades in Tulkarem who is serving 36 life- imprisonment terms in the Israeli Rimon jail, has decided to go on hunger strike protesting incarceration conditions in jail, his wife said.

According to his wife Ikhlas Al-Sayyed, Abbas was punished by the Israeli occupation authorities after the statements he made to Al-Jazeera satellite TV channel during his appeal hearing in n Israeli court two weeks ago.

“My husband was placed in underground solitary confinement, and the Israeli jailors confiscated all his possessions, leaving him for few days there before sending him back to the solitary conferment in the Rimon jail where he spent one year isolated till now, prompting him to go on hunger strike till he is released from the solitary confinement” she added.

She appealed to all human rights and legal institutions to help end the ordeal of her husband and to pressure the Israeli occupation authorities allow him family visit, noting that he was denied family visit for more than one year now.
