RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Palestinian prisoners center for studies said that Jordanian prisoner Iyad Abu Khudair almost died when an Israeli jailer locked him up in a steel cell or container exposed to a high sun temperature in the Negev desert prison.

The center stated on Monday that prisoner Abu Khudair, 37, was about to lose his life after one of the Negev prison mangers transferred him from his solitary cell to a steel cage in the middle of the scorching desert.

Abu Khudair spent a whole day in this metal cell and his suffering from the high temperature inside caused him to lose his consciousness for many hours.

Prisoner Abu Khudair has been on an open-ended hunger strike for 14 days and started to refuse drinking water five days ago in protest at the Israeli refusal to release him after he finished serving his eight-year prison term.

The Israeli regime claims that Jordan refuses to receive Abu Khudair, who holds Jordanian citizenship and has served in the Jordanian army.

The center appealed to the Jordanian government to assume its responsibility towards prisoner Abu Khudair and all other Jordanian hunger strikers in Israeli jails.
