RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails will go on hunger strike again this Tuesday to show support to long-term hunger strikers, the Palestinian Authority ministry of prisoners affairs said.
Last Tuesday, prisoners launched a solidarity strike in support of the Ayman Sharawna, Samer Issawi and Odai Kilani.
The ministry said inmates warn that “the situation inside prisons will explode if anything bad happens to them.”
The statement said Sharwana, on hunger strike for 156 days, is unable to sleep and has lost 90 percent of eyesight in his right eye.
Issawi, on hunger strike for 125 days, suffers continual fainting and cannot use his right leg and hand, it continued.
Issawi, from Jerusalem, and Sharawna, from Hebron were both released under the 2011 prisoner swap deal but rearrested shortly after, and are being held without charge.
Kilani, who is from Tubas, has refused food for 43 days to protest the renewal of his administrative detention order.

“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.
