#PalHunger | 23 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails on hunger strike

[ PIC 24/06/2013 – 11:45 AM ]

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Palestinian prisoner’s society said that 23 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli occupation jails are on hunger strike.

It said in a statement on Sunday that five of those were holders of Jordanian nationality who have been on 55 days of hunger strike demanding their release.

The statement pointed out that four other prisoners were held in administrative custody without trial or charge, noting that one of them Ayman Hamdan has been on hunger strike the longest among all 23 prisoners as he started his strike on 28th April.

It said that eight prisoners in Raymond jail are on hunger strike demanding their transfer to other jails in northern Palestine occupied in 1948 to be nearer to their families.

The statement said that five other prisoners are on hunger strike demanding their release or better incarceration conditions in addition to halting inhuman practices against them.

It said that Ghassan Ulayan was on open-ended hunger strike protesting his re-arrest after he was released in the prisoners’ exchange deal Wafa Al-Ahrar.

Note from occpal: Previously by Israel released prisoners received a Presidential Pardon of Peres. Also called Amnesty or Clemency by law to restore ones civil rights and being totally pardoned for the (alleged) crimes if even in the case of Palestinians’ ever charged before at all. Re-arresting pardoned prisoners (also from the Wafa al Ahrar deal) without any charge is a severe violation of human rights.
