Gaza, Alray – Member of the Islamic Bloc Omar Qurut was transferred to Ramallah ‎hospital as his health deteriorated due to being on hunger strike for 9 consecutive days to ‎protest the continued political detention of the bloc students at Bir Zeit University.‎

Representative of the Islamic Bloc, the student body of Hamas Movement, Mohammed ‎Zaid said that “the fifteen protesters continue to hold a sit-in for the ninth day in a row ‎inside the campus of the university,”‎

‎“They demand the release of their colleagues arrested by Palestinian intelligence service: ‎Motasem-Billah Omar, Mohammed Qaddomi, Suhaib Rab’i,” he added

‎‎“Four students have staged the hunger strike on Monday,” he noted, stressing that “the ‎next escalatory step is that 130 students will join the hunger strikers for three days as of ‎Tuesday (August 20th)”‎

‎In response to the statement released by Fatah Youth, the student body of Fatah ‎Movement, that the detentions were because of financial misdemeanor, Zaid said that “it ‎is a false and naïve pretext to justify the continued political detention the kidnapping of ‎the Islamic bloc affiliates.
