#PalHunger | Israeli military court delays decision on two hunger strikers

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– The Israeli military court in Ofer has delayed ruling on the appeal for the release of hunger strikers Thaer Halahle and Bilal Dhiab until further notice.

Lawyer Ahmed Safiya told the PIC from the court room on Thursday that Dhiab fainted in the court room and the judge ordered an immediate checkup on his condition.

The court hearing was the last attempt to secure release of both Halahle and Dhiab, who have been on hunger strike for 66 days and whose health condition seriously worsened over the past few days.

Halahle’s brother earlier Thursday told Quds Press that the family home turned into a sit-in rally where many inhabitants of their village and solidarity activists met on the same time of the court hearing.

He said that his brother refused an offer by the Israeli occupation authority to release him on condition that he would be deported to Gaza if he ended his hunger strike but he refused, affirming that he would leave the prison only to his home.

Both, Halahle and Dhiab, are held in administrative custody without any charge leveled against them.

Meanwhile, the Ahrar center for prisoners’ studies and human rights said that the Israeli prison service was denying hunger striking prisoners medical care.

The center’s director, Fuad Al-Khafsh, said that the IPS imposed fines on all striking prisoners, deprived them of family visits for one month and of sending message to their relatives for a similar period.

Khafsh urged the media to expose the IPS cruel measures against the Palestinian prisoners who have been on hunger strike for 17 days.
