#PalHunger | Prisoner Eyad Abu Khudair from Gaza starts open end hunger strike demanding his release

[ PIC 15/05/2013 – 09:23 PM ]

images_News_2013_05_15_prisoner02_300_0[1]GAZA, (PIC)– Palestinian prisoner Eyad Abu Khudair launched on Tuesday an open-ended hunger strike in protest at the occupation authorities’ refusal to release him after the completion of his sentence.

Muhjat Al-Quds Foundation for Prisoners said in a statement on Tuesday that the prisoner Eyad decided to go on hunger strike after the occupation authorities informed him that his detention will be extended for 14 other days, during which they will discuss whether Eyad will be released to the Gaza Strip or to Jordan, where he used to live.

The Israeli authorities refused to release captive Abu Khudair, from the city of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, after the end of his prison term of 8 years on 12 April 2013.

Abu Khudair was arrested on the 12 April 2005, on charges of resisting the occupation and affiliation with the Islamic Jihad movement. He was sentenced to 8 years that ended last month, but the occupation forces have been refusing to release him arguing that he does not carry a Palestinian ID.
