AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Administrative detainee Khalil Abu Arqub has gone on hunger strike four days ago in Megiddo jail, Tadamun foundation for human rights said on Wednesday.

Ahmed Al-Beitawi, a researcher with the foundation, said that Abu Arqub, from Oyun Abu Seif hamlet near Dura town in Al-Khalil, started his hunger strike last Sunday.

He said that Abu Arqub, 35, was demanding his transfer to a jail near to his hometown in the south, instead of the northern Megiddo jail, to facilitate his relatives’ visits.

He said that the prison administration transferred the hunger striker from Ward 5 to solitary confinement as soon as he declared his strike and refused to speak with him on his demands.

Beitawi said that the Israeli prison service had arbitrarily moved Abu Arqub to Megiddo jail ten months ago.

He recalled that Abu Arqub, an Islamic Jihad activist, had previously served four years in Israeli jails.

The Israeli occupation forces nabbed Abu Arqub on 10/7/2012 only few days after his first son was born. He was held in administrative detention, without trial or charge, since then and his mother died six months ago.
