#PalHunger | Umm Hamza on hunger strike until her husband released

[ PIC 21/01/2013 – 01:51 PM ]


NAZARETH, (PIC)– Umm Hamza, the wife of prisoner Jaafar Izzuddin, insists on continuing her hunger strike which she started 28 days ago in solidarity with her husband, who has been on hunger strike for 56 days in protest at his administrative detention without any guilt.

Izzuddin had gone on hunger strike last year for 55 days for the same reason before he was released and then administratively detained once again.

“I have been going partially on hunger strike and taking only fluids for 27 days, and I would continue to do so until my husband is released,” Umm Hamza affirmed.

“I am trying through my hunger strike to send a message to the world and to those who have living conscience that we are suffering because of the absence of my husband and that he, himself, suffers more because of his detention administratively and without any charge,” the wife of Izzuddin said.

“We do not see any [international] move in favor of the striking prisoners in Israeli jails, nor do we hear condemnation against their continued detention,” She added.

Umm Hamza noted that she only takes fluids during her hunger strike in order to be able to stand up on her feet and take care of her children.

“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.
