Hunger Strikers’ Families Demand International Intervention for the Strikers

[ PIC 05/04/2012 – 09:55 PM ]

JININ, (pic)– Hunger strikers’ families, in Jenin, stated that the occupation bears full responsibility for the strikers’ lives, appealing to all human rights and humanitarian organizations to stand with them, and asking for an immediate international intervention to release and protect them.

Bilal Diab has been in administrative detention without charge, and there is nothing to justify his detention especially that his health condition is very critical, the prisoner’s brother said during a solidarity protest in front of the Red Cross in Jenin on Wednesday.

For her part, the mother of Mohamed Tej, who has been in hunger strike for 22 days running, called the international institutions for the enforcement of Geneva Conventions for prisoners, especially the third and the fourth and to pressure the occupation to apply them.

She also stressed the importance of international institutions’ role to save the hunger strikers’ lives and to prevent occupation violations of international law.

The protesters transmitted a note to the International Committee of the Red Cross in Jenin, demanding it to immediately intervene to save the hunger strikers’ lives, to put an end to the policy of administrative detention, and to stop the Zionist violations against the captives in occupation prisons, especially solitary confinement, and collective punishment.
