GAZA,(PIC)– The Palestinian ministry of prisoners’ affairs said the prisoner Ayman Sharawna from Dora in southern Al-Khalil begun his open hunger strike on Sunday till his release.

The ministry stated in a statement that Sharawna is a liberated prisoner in Wafa al-Ahrar deal where he spent ten years in occupation prisons. He is the first liberated prisoner who was re-arrested after Wafa al-Ahrar exchange deal in October last year, where he was administratively sentenced for six months.

The ministry stressed that the arrest of Sharawna and other liberated prisoners is a flagrant violation of what have been agreed in Wafa al-Ahrar deal through Egyptian mediation.

The ministry urged the Arab Republic of Egypt and human rights and humanitarian organizations led by the International Red Cross to intervene immediately to save the lives of Sharawna and his colleagues.

The ministry had announced in an earlier statement that the occupation has arrested 15 prisoners liberated in Wafa al-Ahrar deal, and considered it a violation of the exchange deal and international conventions and norms.
