RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Twelve Palestinian and Jordanian detainees are staging a hunger strike in Israeli prisons, including 9 prisoners held in hospitals, the Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) said.

Administrative detainee Ayman Hamdan, who has gone the longest without food, has refused food for over 100 days, in addition to Imad Batran who declared hunger strike since 91 days in protest of their detention without trial or charge.

The PPS pointed out that the five Jordanian prisoners, who launched their hunger strike since early May demanding their release from Israeli prisons so that they can serve their sentences in Jordanian prisons, are all held in Soroka hospital while the prisoner Adel Harbiyat, 76 days on hunger strike, is being held in Kaplan hospital. .

Meanwhile, the two brothers Ayman and Mohammed Etbaish continued their hunger strike for 76 and 67 days respectively to protest their administrative detention.

The Jerusalemite prisoner Hossam Matar has also declared his hunger strike since 67 days demanding his release, as well as the prisoner Abdul Majeed Khaddarat who has gone on hunger strike since 37 days.

On the other hand, the Israeli courts have extended the arrest of 15 prisoners pending investigation, the PPS said.

The PPS statement confirmed that Petach Tikva court extended the detention of 5 Palestinian captives, while Salem military court renewed the arrest of 4 other detainees to complete investigation.

Jalama court has also extended the arrest of 6 prisoners under the same pretext.
