Abbas Assayed threatens to go on hunger strike to end his isolation

[ PIC 03/04/2012 – 03:04 PM ]

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Abbas Assayed, a detained commander of the Qassam Brigades, has threatened to go on hunger strike if the Israeli occupation authority decided to renew his isolation.

Assayed said in a leaked message from his isolation cell in the Israeli Gilboa jail that the Israeli intelligence and the Israeli prison service (IPS) handed him a notification that they demanded renewal of his solitary confinement for one more year.

He said that a court hearing was set for 4/4/2012 to discuss the request, noting that usually the court responds favorably to such requests.

Assayed said that there is no justification for retaining him in isolation, and added that he would not accept renewing his solitary confinement. He said that he would go on an open-ended hunger strike.

He also said that the IPS did not allow proper medical check-up for him after the Israeli guards severely beat him up a few days ago and his condition worsened. He asked for medical examination from outside the prison’s “alleged medical services”.
