[ PIC 19/05/2013 – 12:26 PM ]

images_News_2013_05_19_barghouthi_300_0[1]GAZA, (PIC)– Wa’ed Society for Detainees and Ex-detainees said that the Israeli authorities transferred on Friday evening captive leader Abdullah Barghouti, sentenced to 67 life terms, to solitary confinement.

Wa’ed said in a statement on Saturday that prisoner Barghouti has been on hunger strike for the past 15 days, with a number of Jordanian prisoners in Israeli jails, to demand the achievement of their human rights guaranteed by all international conventions.

It also revealed that captive Abdullah started refusing to drink water on Friday evening in response to his isolation.

Wa’ed warned of the seriousness of Barghouti’s health condition, in light of the occupation’s neglect to his demands and the repeated and deliberate abuses against him.

It called on the media to highlight his case in order to pressure the occupation to meet his fair demands.
