JENIN, NAZARETH, (PIC)– Akram Anteer, a liberated prisoner deported to Germany, announced on Monday entering an open-ended hunger strike in solidarity with the hunger striking prisoners in Israeli jails, despite his illness.

Anteer, 32 from the village of Burqin in Jenin, said he was determined to launch the hunger strike despite his illness, in light of the international community’s neglect of the issue of hunger striking prisoners, who are exposed to slow death.

Akram was arrested by the occupation authorities after being wounded in the Jenin refugee camp. He served 7 years in Israeli jails after which he was deported to Germany, in 2009, to receive treatment in a hospital in Berlin.

Meanwhile, the Israeli organization Physicians for Human Rights revealed in a press statement on Monday that the occupation authorities have been treating badly the Palestinian prisoners; Tarek Qa’dan, Jafar Ezzedine, Ayman Sharawna and Samer Issawi, who have been on an open hunger strike in protest at their unjustifiable detention and their transfer to administrative detention.

The Organization added that the Israeli authorities have prevented independent doctors, including the Organization’s physicians, from checking on the health conditions of hunger striking prisoners.

It has also criticized the Israeli procedures against the hunger strikers, and considered them violation of the laws, international treaties and medical ethics.
