#HanaShalabi – Islamic Jihad praise Hana Shalabi’s hunger strike

MAAN NEWS AGENCY FEB 27 2012

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Islamic Jihad said Monday that they hold Israeli authorities responsible for female detainee Hana Shalabi, who is currently on day 12 of a hunger strike in protest against Israeli administrative detention.

The movement praised her protest against “inhumanity,” describing her actions as an intifada against Israeli policies.

Hana Shalabi, from the northern West Bank village Burqin, is being held without charge since her detention on Feb. 16. She announced her hunger strike immediately after soldiers seized her from the family’s Jenin-district home.

Shalabi was freed in October 2011 when Hamas secured the release of more than 1,000 Palestinians in Israeli jails in exchange for a captured Israeli soldier.

She had spent 25 months in administrative detention, under procedures that allow Israel to detain Palestinians for renewable terms of six months without pressing charges, using laws dating back to the British Mandate period.
