#PalHunger | Israeli forces raid Issawi’s home town

Maan News Agency | April 22, 2013

31899_345x230[1]JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — Israeli forces on Monday stormed the hometown of Samer Issawi and tore down a solidarity tent erected to support the hunger striker, witnesses said.

Clashes erupted as Israeli forces took down the tent in East Jerusalem’s Issawiya, which was used to welcome supporters of Issawi.

Israeli forces fired stun grenades and plastic-coated bullets during the raid, and local young men threw rocks at them.

Three Palestinians were arrested, witnesses told Ma’an, including 34-year-old Raed Abu Riyala and Yazan Audah, 21.

Issawiya has been the scene of almost daily clashes with Israeli troops, who have dismantled the tent dozens of times.

Issawi has been on hunger strike in Israeli detention for 265 days, and insists he will not eat until he is allowed to return to Issawiya.

“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.
