#PalHunger | Teibi: Occupation responsible for lives of captives

[ PIC 03/05/2012 – 12:15 AM ]

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM/ NABLUS (PIC)– The Arab member in the Israeli Knesset, Ahmed Teibi affirmed that 4 hunger striking prisoners’ lives in the occupation’s jails are in danger and that the occupation authorities are fully responsible for their lives.

This was mentioned in his letter addressed to Isaac Aheronovic the Israeli Minister of Internal Security in which he asked him to transfer the captive Thaer Halahla to the hospital due to his deteriorating health condition.

Tibi expressed in a statement on Wednesday his fear that the occupation authorities might actually want some hunger strikers to die as a way of foiling the hunger strike.

A leader of the strike in Megiddo prison, captive Mohammed Sabha, said that most of the strike leaders had been isolated. However the captive movement took the necessary measures for the continuation of the strike in case of isolating all the leaders in the next phase.

In his letter addressed to Ahrar Center, Sabha said that the strike is going better than planned, and that the prisoners’ will is strong since they are well prepared and ready for the expected repression and isolation and pointed out that the captives from different factions are united and will not give up until achieving their demands.

Furthermore, Sabha called all faction leaders, especially those from “Hamas” and “Fatah” to unite and establish reconciliation through joining their activities supporting prisoners.

He pointed out that even ill prisoners showed strong determination to participate in the strike, which demonstrates the captives’ strong will.

Meanwhile, Fouad Khuffash, director of the Ahrar Center denied the presence of any changes in the Prison Administration positions, pointing to the existence of maneuvers and attempts to meet separately with each captive for negotiations, and to which the prisoners responded by saying that the strike leadership is the only responsible for negotiations.
