JENIN, (PIC)– A human rights group said that the health condition of three Palestinian detainees, who have been on hunger strike for 59 days in Israeli occupation jails, had entered a critical stage.

Mohammed Al-Abed, a lawyer with the international Tadamun foundation for human rights, said that Tarek Qaadan, Jafar Ezzuddin, and Yousef Yassin have started to vomit blood.

Abed said after visiting the three at the Ramle prison hospital on Wednesday that the three were vomiting clotted blood, green and red thick fluids, and their bodies could no longer accept water.

The lawyer said in a statement on Thursday that the three feel exhausted all the time and can only pray while sitting. They also suffer dizziness, headaches, and swelling in their legs, he added.

Abed said that the three refuse to have any medical checkups or consume any vitamins, salts or medical liquids.

“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.
