#PalHunger | Waad calls for urgent intervention to save Abu Sisi’s life

[ PIC 24/08/2013 – 10:15 AM ]


GAZA, (PIC)– Waad society for liberated prisoners called on human rights and humanitarian organizations to intervene immediately to save the life of the hunger striker and isolated prisoner in Israeli occupation jails Dirar Abu Sisi.

The society warned of Abu Sisi’s serious deterioration after eight days of hunger strike in protest against his solitary confinement. Abu Sisi was transferred to Soroka hospital due to his health condition, it noted.

Dirar Abu Sisi, 44, the deputy engineer of the only power plant in the Gaza Strip, was in the Ukraine when he was kidnapped at the hands of Israeli foreign intelligence agents on the 19th of February 2011.

He was kept in solitary confinement since his abduction under extremely poor conditions. He is now suffering from weakening health condition and psychological trauma. He was subjected to torture, humiliation and inhumane treatment in Israeli occupation prisons.
