JENIN, (PIC)– Families of Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike in Israeli jails have organized on Sunday a silent sit-in in Dawar Cinema in the downtown of Jenin.

Dozens of activists have participated in the silent sit-in organized by striking prisoners’ families, protesting against the international silence and passivity towards the prisoners’ issue.

The Participants were holding their sons’ pictures who declared hunger strike since 48 days.

We sound the alarm after the deteriorating situation of the prisoners, Muawiya Kaadan, the hunger striker Tarek Kaadan’s brother told the PIC correspondent, calling on all international and local institutions and political leaders to move for saving the prisoners’ lives before it is too late.

For her part, Um Hamza, Jafar Azzedine’s wife told PIC reporter that her husband suffers a very difficult health situation after he stopped taking vitamins, denouncing all leaders’ official silence towards the prisoners’ suffering.

It is noteworthy that the three prisoners from Jenin, Tarek Kaadan and Jafar Ezzeddine and Youssef Shaaban, continued their hunger strike since 48 days protesting against their administrative detention.
