#PalHunger | Captive Rimawi continues his hunger strike for the 97th day

[ PIC 06/08/2013 – 01:07 PM ]


RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Captive Mohammad Rimawi has continued his open-ended hunger strike for the 97th consecutive day.

Rimawi’s family told PIC that Mohammad, held in Ramle prison in the 1948 occupied territories, has continued his hunger strike in rejection of his detention in the Israeli jails and demands to be transferred to Jordan as he holds the Jordanian citizenship.

Five prisoners from Jordan have been on open hunger strike for more than three months in the occupation prisons.

Meanwhile, the Family of captive Tayyip Houshiya, 19 from the town of Yamoun near Jenin, expressed concern about the health status of Tayyip.

His father Ammar told PIC’s correspondent that his son suffers from several health issues and that the Israeli occupation forces did not allow him to take his medication with him during his arrest several days ago.

Houshiya demanded the International Committee of the Red Cross to exert pressure on the Israeli government in order to provide the necessary treatment for him.
