#PalHunger | IPS still procrastinates in ending Abu Sisi’s solitary confinement

[ PIC 27/08/2013 – 10:21 AM ]


RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) stated that the Israeli Prison Services (IPS) is still procrastinating in dealing with captive Dirar Abu Sisi’s issue, where it kept offering unaccepted solutions.

The human rights center condemned the Israeli suggestion to transfer Abu Sisi to another solitary confinement with better detention conditions, stressing that his health situation necessitates presence of colleagues near him to assist in times of need.

The PPS said that Abu Sisi’s solitary confinement came as part of the Israeli punitive policy against the prisoners in order to undermine their spirits.

Eight Palestinian prisoners launched on Monday an open-ended hunger strike in solidarity with Abu Sisi demanding an end to his solitary confinement as a first stage of a mass hunger strike.

Waad Association said that five other prisoners have joined Tuesday the hunger strike in solidarity with the only isolated prisoner in Israeli jails Dirar Abu Sisi.

The five prisoners will declare hunger strike upon their arrival to Nafha prison this afternoon.

The number of the hunger strikers has risen to reach 13 prisoners, demanding an end to the policy of solitary confinement. More prisoners would join gradually the hunger strike during the current week and the coming weeks in order to pressure the Israeli jailers to end the isolation of Abu Sisi, Waad said.
