#PalHunger | Ramla jailers pressure eight prisoners to break their hunger strike

[ PIC 22/07/2013 – 10:49 AM ]


RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Palestinian prisoner society said that eight hunger strikers, three of them Jordanians, are exposed to tremendous pressures by the Israeli administration of Ramla jail to dissuade them from continuing their hunger strike.

The lawyer of the prisoner society quoted Jordanian hunger striker Munir Mar’ei as saying that he and two other prisoners are being held in the section of mental patients in the infirmary of Ramla jail in order to pressure them into ending their hunger strike.

The prisoner noted that they cannot sleep because the mental patients keep screaming and causing noises especially at night, adding that providing them with water takes more than one hour.

He also said that they are being held in an unhealthy cell with a doorless restroom.

Mar’ei affirmed that the Israeli prison administration told them that the Israeli regime does not care about their issue and would not consider their release.

According to the prisoner society, a number of hunger strikers, who are being held in the infirmary of Ramla jail, suffer from a sharp decline in their heart rates and in the levels of salts and minerals in their bodies.
