RAMALLAH,(PIC)– The Palestinian prisoners in “Eshel” prison declared on Thursday a hunger strike, in protest against the isolation of 27 prisoners and against the Israeli repression policy carried out against them.

The Ministry of Prisoners’ Affairs said, in a press statement, that the prisoners returned their meals for the second day in a row, protesting against the isolation of 27 prisoners, and against the escalation brutal policy pursued against prisoners, including storming their rooms and strip search, according to the statement.

The prisoners said that the prison administration closed the sections, and prevented them from going out to the yards, and prevented them from visits, pointing out that the situation is still fraught and tense.

The ministry said the escalation in the “Eichel” prison began after the prison administration has filmed and broadcasted a ceremony set up by prisoners, sparking incitement against prisoners by the Israeli right-wing.

“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.
