#PalHunger | Political detainee Natshe transferred to hospital for fourth time

[ PIC 04/07/2012 – 04:42 PM ]

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Political detainee Mutasem Al-Natshe was transferred to hospital for the fourth time from his PA jail in Bethlehem on Tuesday night due to deterioration of his health condition.

Natshe’s family told the PIC reporter that Natshe, who has been on hunger strike for two weeks, was taken to Bethlehem government hospital.

The family held PA chief Mahmoud Abbas and his security apparatuses responsible for the life of Natshe, who has been in PA jails for three years on the charge of affiliation with resistance.

Three other political detainees in Bethlehem intelligence prison are on hunger strike since 20/6/2012 protesting their continued incarceration despite obtaining court orders for their release.

Meanwhile, the committee of relatives of political detainees and the league of Muslim youth in the West Bank have organized in Ramallah a sit-in to protest the continued detention of those detainees.

The committee and the league have called on citizens, relatives of detainees, MPs, representatives of national and Islamic forces and civil institutions to join the protest at noon Wednesday.

They denounced the silence toward those detainees’ suffering, especially those on hunger strike, and the deterioration in the health of some of them as a result.

In the same context, seven Al-Khalil University students are still on hunger strike for the third day today rejecting political detention and demanding the release of three of their colleagues.

The essayists explore the history of torture in Israel, the daily challenges that practitioners face in seeking accountability for torture and CIDT in Israel, and the changing face of torture.
