AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– The two Palestinian prisoners, Adel Aharibat and Ayman Atabich from Dura south of al-Khalil, still continue their open hunger strike for 19 days in a row.

The two prisoners, held in Ofer prison, have continued their hunger strike declared in May 23 protesting their administrative detention, family sources told PIC correspondent.

The prisoners were previously detained more than once where Aharibat has served 12 years behind Israeli bars and Atabich was held for 11years in Israeli jails.

Meanwhile, the liberated prisoner Tawfiq Abu Naim, head of Waed Association for prisoners’ affairs called for more support for the 13 prisoners in Israeli jails who declared hunger strike individually.

Abu Naim pointed that most of the individual strikes managed to achieve their demands, stressing that time has come for unifying the national efforts to support the prisoners who sacrificed their lives in light of the Israeli violations to the agreements signed with the Captive Movement.

He confirmed that the prisoners’ hunger strike succeeded to motivate the solidarity campaigns and to pressure the Israeli authorities, saying that they will always stand behind the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails and the hunger strikers particularly.
