OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli prison authority took Samer Al-Issawi, who has been on hunger strike for 179 days, from Ramle prison hospital to Assaf Harofeh medical center after his health badly worsened on Saturday.

Lawyer Shireen Issawi, Samer’s sister, said on her Facebook page on Saturday night that she received a phone call from Ramle prison administration informing her that her brother was taken to Assaf Harofeh.

She said that Samer’s health condition was very serious, adding that he was suffering from very low heart pulse.

Samer is currently suffering from acute pain all over his body especially in his abdomen and kidneys and constant dizziness in addition to broken ribs as a result of the assault on him in court by his jailors, his sister said.

Shireen said that her brother is held in complete isolation away from the other hunger strikers despite his repeated demands to be held in one room with them.

The lawyer recently complained of the weak official and popular solidarity campaigns with the issue of the 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.
