#FreeSamer | Global action to save the life of Hunger striker Samer Issawi

GAZA, (PIC)– Hazem Al-Tawil has gone on an open-ended hunger strike four days ago to protest the Israeli occupation’s decision to hold him in administrative detention, without trial or charge.

The Palestine center for prisoners’ studies recalled that Tawil was held in PA jails since 30/1/2013 for two weeks. It added in a statement on Saturday that the Israeli occupation forces arrested Tawil on the same day of his release and ordered his administrative detention for six months in Ofer jail.

It said that Tawil, who previously served a few months in Israeli jails, was held in solitary confinement as a punishment for going on hunger strike.

The center held the Israeli occupation authorities fully responsible for the life of Tawil who suffered a stroke before his arrest and the hunger strike could pose a threat on his life.

“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.
