Palestinian Prisoners Continue Hunger Strike Inside Israeli Prisons

  • Palestine

Ramallah, June 19 (QNA) - Palestinian prisoners in Israeli detentions and prisons continued their open hunger strike in rejection to the administrative detention policy.
The Head of the Palestinian Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners Affairs Commission Qadri Abu Bakr said in a statement that six Palestinian prisoners in Israeli occupation prisons continued their open hunger strike, including those who have been on hunger strike since 109 days.
He warned against sudden health setback that threatens the life of the prisoners on hunger strike as a result of the lack of fluid in their bodies, adding that the occupation authorities use administrative detention to put Palestinians in cells without trials or accounting for the reasons, for various periods that are automatically renewable.
In the same context, 640 administrative detainees in the occupation prisons continue to boycott the occupation courts for the 170th straight day, as part of their confrontation with the policy of administrative detention, with the continuation of escalation by occupation forces through issuing more orders against former and new detainees.
There are approximately 682 prisoners in Israeli occupation prisons under administrative detention decisions, out of nearly 4,600 prisoners, and the number of administrative detention decisions since 1967 is estimated at more than 54,000 decisions. (QNA)
