RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Jordanian prisoners in Israeli jails have entered their 80th day of the hunger strike which they started on 2 May.

Lawyer Hanan Al-Khatib, who visited the prisoners in Ramla jail, said that the hunger strikers threatened to stop taking fluids and drinking water if the prison administration kept detaining them in the section of mental patients and ignoring their serious health conditions.

The lawyer affirmed that the Israeli administration of Ramla jail deliberately humiliate the hunger strikers in general, especially the Jordanians who are detained in the section of mental patients inside a room with an insulated glass window.

She added that the Jordanian hunger strikers are exposed to daily search raids during which they are forced to stand naked for search and their belongings are tampered with amid insults of the jailers.
