RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Israeli security guards at the Raymon jail have arrested three relatives of detained Palestinians on Sunday and deprived the remaining relatives of visitation on that day.

The Palestinian prisoner’s association said in a statement that the security guards arrested Diala Mustafa, 26, and her younger brother Saad, 15, while visiting their brother Mohammed who has been in custody since 2003 and who is serving a life sentence.

The statement noted that the guards also arrested Yusra Adel, 30, during the same day during a visit to her brother Saed who has been serving a 25-year sentence since 2003.

The association quoted eyewitnesses as saying that the guards took the three away and cancelled the visits for that day.

In another development a Palestinian detainee started a hunger strike five days ago demanding treating him as a “war prisoner”.

Human rights sources said that Kifah Hattab from Tulkarem was waging the hunger strike to be treated as war prisoner and thus allow him to receive visitors, meet lawyers, and go to the clinic without wearing the prison uniform in addition to not standing for the daily count.

The sources affirmed that Hattab would continue in his hunger strike until all his demands are met.

Meanwhile, three other administrative detainees in the Israeli Shatta jail went on hunger strike on Sunday protesting their detention without trial or charge.
