Number of Palestinian detainees on hunger strike on the rise

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Megiddo prison administration transferred the prisoners, who went on hunger strike in solidarity with Hana Al-Shalabi, to other prisons, lawyer Jawad Boulus said.

The prisoners told the lawyer, who visited them, that the prison’s administration had transferred Mohammed Sabha, the Hamas prisoners’ representative, to isolation in the Gilboa jail, Mohammed Al-Aboushi to isolation in Ashkelon jail, Bilal Camille to an unknown place, and Tariq Ka’adan to Acre jail.

The prisoners added that the prisons’ administration took such punitive measures in an attempt to reduce the number of those who are prepared to join the hunger strike, especially with the increasing number of hunger strikers that reached 24. As a response to these unfair measures the prisoners returned a meal on Saturday and decided to return the meals on Sunday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

Boulus stated that the prisoners greeted the steadfastness of Palestinian woman Hana Al-Shalabi who went on an open hunger strike for more than 30 days, and called on organizations catering for the affairs of prisoners to shed light on the plight of Palestinian administrative detainees, who are held in Israeli custody without trial or charge.
