OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– A Palestinian Human Rights organization reported the deterioration of the health situation of Jerusalemite prisoner Samer al-Issawi, on hunger strike since 59 days.

Prisoner al-Issawi, 38, has launched an open ended hunger strike on 1st August in protest at his re-arrest by the occupation authorities to continue his sentence of 30 years after being released in a prisoner-exchange deal.

Palestinian Prisoner Society said in a press statement on Friday that the Israeli prison administration is continue its repressive measures against prisoner al-Issawi in an attempt to force him to halt his hunger strike.

According to the statement, the Jerusalemite captive has been suffering extremely serious health deterioration, a constant headache and pains in the muscles and joints, as he became unable to walk normally and lost 15 kilograms of weight.

The Prisoners Club quoted Samer Tarek al-Issawi as saying that the prison administration has insisted on holding him in a cell with six other prisoners who are not on hunger strike in an attempt to undermine his determination. However, he stressed that he will continue his strike until his release.

“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.
