#PalHunger | Mahmoud Sarsak continues his hunger strike for the 85th day running

GAZA,(PIC)–The Palestinian detainee Mahmoud Sarsak, 28, has entered the 85th day of his grueling hunger strike which is considered the longest hunger strike in Palestinian history, protesting against his renewable administrative detention without charge or trial for more than three years.

The detainee Sarsak is now in a very serious condition, his health status is not reassuring especially since he feels constant pain in his head, heart muscles, and he is always dizzy which caused him once to collapse and hit his head strongly on the floor. Despite his critical health conditions in light of his continuous hunger strike, the Israeli prison administration insists to detain him at Ramla prison hospital, a small medical facility that lacks basic medications and medical equipment.

Mahmoud Sarsak, from Rafah in the southern Gaza strip, has been imprisoned by Israel for the past three years, after being arrested by the Israeli military on 22 July 2009 at the Erez checkpoint in Gaza while on his way to join the Palestine National Football team for a match in Balata refugee camp in the West Bank. He has been turned directly to administrative detention without trial or charge where he is still facing constant renewal of indefinite detention.

After he has been jailed without charge or trial for almost three years, Sarsak decided to go on an open hunger strike in March where he continues his hunger strike for the 85th day running as the longest hunger strike in the history of strikes around the world.
