AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– The mother of detained hunger striker Ayman Sharawne has gone on open-ended hunger strike since Sunday in solidarity with her son.

Jihad and Abdulrahman, the two brothers of Ayman, have also gone on hunger strike in addition to two other activists, Ismail Sharawne and Musab Shawar, at the sit-in tent in downtown Al-Khalil.

Amjad Annajar, the director of the Palestinian prisoner’s association branch in Al-Khalil, opined that victory was approaching in the issue of those hunger strikers.

He explained that the growing popular protests and rallies had their impact on the Israeli prison service and would culminate in deterring the IPS from further quelling of Palestinian prisoners.

Ayman Sharawne went on hunger strike on 1/7/2012 for140 days then returned to hunger strike on 16/1/2013 till now after the IPS backtracked on its promise to release him.

Sharawne, who was released in the Wafa Al-Ahrar prisoners’ exchange deal, was arrested few months after his release.

Sharawne family said that Ayman was rushed to Soroka hospital in Beersheba after rapid deterioration in his health condition on Sunday.
