RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Detainee Samer Al-Aisawi went on hunger strike to protest his imprisonment in Israeli occupation jails anew despite his release in the Wafa Al-Ahrar deal a few months ago.

The Palestine prisoners’ center for studies said in a statement that Aisawi, 33, who was arrested 28 days ago started his hunger strike on 2nd of August.

Aisawi was released in the exchange deal after serving ten years of his sentence, the center said, noting that he joined Ayman Sharawne, who has been on hunger strike for 35 days protesting his re-arrest on the part of the Israeli occupation forces.

An Israeli court in occupied Jerusalem extended his detention for one more week at the pretext that he violated condition of his release and blocked contacts with and visits to him by his family and lawyer.

The center pointed out that the IOF had re-arrested seven Palestinian prisoners who were released in the deal between Hamas and Israel and is threatening to force them to complete their sentences.

Meanwhile, the family of Ayman Sharawne pitched a sit-in tent in front of his home in Doura town, south of Al-Khalil, in solidarity with their son.

“On Torture” is an edited volume of essays by Palestinian, Israeli and international legal and medical experts and practitioners based on presentations that they gave during a workshop held in Jerusalem in April 2011 entitled, “Securing Accountability for Torture and Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment (CIDT) in Israel: New Trends and Comparative Lessons”.

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.
