Occupied Palestine(In Palestine Today)- The hunger strike of 7 Palestinian prisoners incarcerated in Israeli occupation prisons is still ongoing in refusal of their administrative detention, among whom is Kayed al-Fasfous who has been fasting the longest for 80 days now.
In addition to al-Fasfous, the others are Meqdad al-Qawasma, who has been on a hunger strike for 73 days, Alaa al-Araj for 55 days, Hisham Abou Hawash for 47 days, Raiq Bisharat for 42 days, Shadi Abou Akar for 39 days, and Hasan Shawkah for 13 days.
The hunger-striking prisoners are in very poor health conditions, which is getting worse by the day since they are suffering from mineral and fluid deficiency, severe exhaustion, and migraines.
The Palestine Prisoners’ Club had warned that any of the seven hunger-strikers may be martyred due to their deteriorating health as the Israeli Prison Service has presented no viable solution.
Al-Qawasma is currently in Kaplan hospital, while al-Fasous, Abou Hawash, and Bisharat are in Ayalon Prison, and Abou Akar and Shawkah are in Ofer prison.
The number of prisoners currently held in Israeli occupation prisons under administrative detention is 520.
