#PalHunger | Human Rights Center holds Israel responsible for Mohammed al-Najjar’s life

[ PIC 05/11/2012 – 09:29 PM ]

GAZA,(PIC)– The Palestinian Center for Prisoners’ Studies held occupation authorities and prison service fully responsible for the Palestinian prisoner Mohammed al-Najjar’s life especially after deteriorating health conditions.

The center information officer, Riad Ashkar, stated that al-Najjar, 30, began his hunger strike since the first day of his arrest, six day ago, protesting his abduction without charges and his administrative detention for four months. He has been arrested previously for eight years administratively.

He noted that the prisoner suffers serious health problems, warning that his life is in real danger in case he continues his hunger strike, where he suffers from bacterium in the stomach.

The IOA has been forced to take him to the hospital after the deterioration of his health situation due to the medical negligence exercised by the prisons services against the prisoners.

He warned against the real danger that Palestinian detainees are facing, stressing that their lives are threatened at any moment. He called on all parties to bear its responsibilities towards the prisoners’ suffering especially the sick detainees and to internationalize their issue to force the occupation to release them before losing their lives.

The center called on the Egyptian government, and specifically the Egyptian General Intelligence Service, to intervene to end the suffering of the prisoners Sharawna and Isawi, especially that it was the mediator of Wafa al-Ahrar agreement made between Hamas and the occupation that prevents the liberated prisoners’ re-arrest.

However the occupation has violated the deal and re-arrested eight of the liberated prisoners where two of them went on an open hunger strike for many weeks demanding their release.
