RAMALLAH, GAZA, (PIC)– The liberated prisoner Nael Barghouti stressed that the health condition of prisoner Samer al-Issawi has seriously deteriorated in light of the continuation of his open-ended hunger strike.

This came during the weekly sit-ins, staged by families of prisoners on Tuesday in front of the Red Cross Square in al-Bireh, and which was organized by the High Commission to follow up on the prisoners and ex-prisoners’ issues.

The protestors raised photos of the hunger striking prisoners and slogans denouncing the occupation government policy inside the jails, and demanding the release of all the captives.

Barghouti called for increasing the solidarity activities and for a broad popular movement, on the local as well as the international level, in order to save the lives of prisoners, especially captive al-Issawi who has been on hunger strike for 197 days respectively.

He also called on all human rights and humanitarian organizations and the international community “to urgently intervene and pressure the Israeli government to end the suffering of the Palestinian prisoners.”

For its part; the Islamic Jihad movement has set up on Tuesday, a tent in solidarity with the hunger striking prisoners in front of the crossing of Beit Hanoun “Erez” in the northern Gaza Strip.

The tent was erected in the presence of a significant number of leaders of the Islamic Jihad and other Palestinian factions, activists and families of prisoners.

The movement leader Abu Tariq Mudallal said: “The idea of setting up a tent in support of the prisoners for the first time in front of the Beit Hanoun crossing demonstrates the seriousness of the conditions of the hunger striking prisoners in light of the occupation refusal to respond to their demands.”

Mudallal denounced the silence and inaction of the human rights institutions and the Palestinian people and factions regarding the conditions of the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails and the Israeli repeated and continuous repressive measures against them.

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.
