Previous long-term hunger striker Samer al-Barq's administrative 
detention was renewed for another six months on June 27, despite the 
previous agreement of the occuation to release him to Egypt in exchange 
for ending his hunger strike.

Samer Al-Barq has been held by the occupation forces since July 11, 
2010, when he was deported by Jordanian security forces to the bridge to 
Palestine and transferred to occupation forces, after his detention in 
Jordan. (Born in Qalqilya, al-Barq had lived in Pakistan for a number of 
years and married a Pakistani woman.)

Since that time, al-Barq has been held in administrative detention 
without charge or trial. After his first open-ended hunger strike, he 
stopped his strike based on the occupation authorities' promise to not 
renew his administrative detention, deport him to Egypt from where he 
could return to Pakistan. The occupation authorities violated their 
promise and instead renewed his administrative detention. He launched a 
new hunger strike that lasted for 120 days and which was once again 
suspended when the occupation promised to apply the agreement, which 
they again violated. He went on a third hunger strike for 43 days, which 
he ended after a health crisis.

The occupation again renewed his administrative detention for an 
additional six months on June 27. Palestinian human rights organizations 
called for international action to defend Samer in the face of the 
occupation's impunity.
