203853_345x230[1]BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — The Palestinian Authority minster of prisoners warned Saturday that if any of the Palestinians on hunger strike in Israeli jails dies the credibility of the UN and all international human rights organizations will be at risk.

Issa Qaraqe urged international groups to intervene immediately in order to save the lives of the hunger strikers, in comments during a welcome ceremony for freed prisoners in Tubas.

Palestinians have launched hunger strikes in Israeli jail to protest their detention and conditions. Several prisoners have been on strike for months.

Samer Issawi, from East Jerusalem, last week stopped drinking water after refusing food for 190 days. Jafar Azzidine and Tarek Qaadan have been on hunger strike for 72 days.

“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.
