images_News_2013_05_17_prisoners2_300_0[1]RAMALLAH, AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– The Palestinian administrative prisoners in Israeli jails decided to launch an open-ended hunger strike at the beginning of the month of June.

Sources in the captive movement inside the Negev prison said that the administrative detainees decided to go on an open-ended hunger strike after two weeks; to demand their release, and a stop to the persistent policy of extending their detention without setting a date for their release.

The sources told Quds Press on Thursday that the prisoners are demanding to stop the policy of administrative detention under which the Palestinians are detained without specific charges or trial.

According to Palestinian human rights data, there are 218 Palestinian detainees held under the Israeli administrative detention, mainly in the prisons of the Negev, Ofer, Megiddo and Hadarim.

Meanwhile, prisoner Ayman Abu Daoud, from al-Khalil, has continued on Thursday his open hunger strike for the 32nd day, in rejection of the continuation of his detention.

Ayman’s family said that its son continues to refuse meals in rejection of the occupation’s attempt to issue a decision obliging him to continue his previous sentence of 36 years imprisonment, and from which he had already served seven years.

The family appealed to all institutions and sponsors of the Wafaa Al-Ahrar exchange deal to intervene to stop the occupation’s practices and breaches.

The Israeli occupation forces re-arrested Abu Dawoud in February 2012. He announced an open-ended hunger strike on April 14.
