AMMAN, (PIC)– The Israeli prison authority prevented the Jordanian hunger strikers from drinking any fluids except water in order to force them into ending their strike which they started on Thursday, according to an informed source.

The source said that the Israeli prison authority used to provide hunger strikers with fluids such as milk, but it decided on Friday to give the Jordanian hunger strikers only water and isolate them in an attempt to pressure them to break their strike.

The Palestine center for prisoner studies said, in turn, that the leadership of the Palestinian captive movement also failed to keep in touch with the Jordanian prisoners after they were isolated.

There are 25 Jordanian detainees in Israeli jails and all of them started two days ago a hunger strike in a bid to draw the attention of their government to their cases and pressure it to move to have them released.

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.
