[ PIC 05/12/2012 – 09:37 AM ]


GAZA, (PIC)– Ahrar center for prisoner studies and human rights said the health condition of hunger strikers Ayman Sharawna and Samer Issawi is deteriorating very badly, describing it as extremely serious and delicate.

In a press release, director of the center Fouad Al-Khafsh stated that the two prisoners have been on hunger strike for more than five months, and consequently they are suffering now from life-threatening health problems.

Khafsh said they suffer from cerebral atrophy, and the spread of fungi in their bodies, especially in their backs because of their failure to stand up and their sleep for long hours on their backs.

They also suffer, he added, from vision, kidney and liver problems and intestinal blockage.

He warned that Sharawna and Issawi could die any moment after all the vital functions of their bodies failed to work properly.

The activist stressed that Sharawna and Issawi need real popular and official moves that could mobilize international support for their cause and hasten their release.

Khafsh noted that some prisoners in Israeli jails went on hunger strike in solidarity with the two hunger strikers.

“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.
