[ PIC 11/05/2012 – 11:38 PM ]

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Lawyer Jawad Boulus on Friday said that seven hunger strikers in occupation jails are at risk of dying according to doctors at the Ramla prison hospital where the prisoners were moved.

Boulus told the AFP that the prison doctor expressed serious concerns for the lives of the seven captives who stopped taking liquids. Boulus added that the doctor called him to try to get him to help somehow.

The lawyer said that seven of the hunger strikers who have been moved to Ramla prison hospital decided to stop taking liquids apart from water and that Bilal Diab and Thaer Halahleh are amongst the seven prisoners. Diab and Halahleh started their hunger strike on 29 February, to protest their administrative detention, making them the longest striking prisoners amongst Palestinian captives.

The other prisoners are: Hasan al-Safadi, Omar Abu Shallal, Ja’far Ezziddin, Mahmoud Sarsak and Muhammad Taj. Some of these captives have exceeded 68 days on hunger strike.
