7 Palestinian detainees in hunger strike against Israeli policy of administrative detention

Occupied Palestine (In Palestine Today)- Seven Palestinian prisoners have been on open-ended hunger strike for weeks in protest at their illegal detention administratively, with no indictments or trials.

The hunger-striking administrative detainees are Kayed al-Fasfous, Miqdad al-Qawasmeh, Alaa al-Araj, Hisham Abu Hawash, Rayek Bisharat, Shadi Abu Aker and Hasan Shouka. They have been on hunger strike for 76, 69, 51, 43, 38, 35 and 9 days respectively.

The prisoners suffer weight loss, lack of salt and minerals, and extreme fatigue, 5 of them were transferred to hospitals.

In the same context, the Commission of Palestinian Detainees Affairs said, in a report published on Tuesday, that Israeli Prison Service (IPS) keeps violating the right of the sick prisoners and intentionally keeps ignoring their special health conditions.
