RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Four Palestinian prisoners, who were taken from their homes in the recent Israeli military arrest campaign in the West Bank, have declared they would go on hunger strike until their release.
The prisoners, all from Jenin province, were protesting their arbitrary arrest then holding them in administrative detention without trial or charge.
Jafar Ezzuddin, who was previously released from Israeli occupation jails after 56 days of hunger strike, was the first to announce he was on hunger strike demanding his release.
Another detainee, Tarek Qadan, also announced his hunger strike until his release. His sister Mona Qadan was detained a few days ago.
Two others said that they were protesting their administrative custody and would maintain their strike until their 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.
