[ PIC 01/06/2013 – 05:38 PM ]

images_News_2013_06_01_jordanian_300_0[1]RAMALLAH, (PIC)– 32 Jordanian prisoners in Israeli jails, led by Qassam commander Abdullah Barghouti, entered their 31st day of hunger strike in protest at the continuation of their detention and at their maltreatment.

Families of the hunger striking prisoners called on the Jordanian government to immediately intervene to help their detained sons.

The sentences of the Jordanian prisoners vary between 10 years and life imprisonment. Most of them are Palestinians who hold Jordanian nationality. They were living in the Kingdom before they decided to enter Palestine to carry out commando operations against the occupation forces.

PPS lawyer said that the health condition of captive Barghouti, former military commander of Hamas in the occupied West Bank who was sentenced to 67 times life imprisonment, has deteriorated.

Barghouti confirmed that he will continue his hunger strike until the achievement of all the demands of the Jordanian prisoners.
