Hnger striking Palestinian prisoner Ayman al-Tabeesh, on strike since 
May 23, administrative detention order was extended again for four 
months on August 28; he is striking to demand his freedom. Mohammad 
al-Tabeesh, his brother, has been striking since June 12, and is held in 
Afula hospital. Mohammad launched his strike in solidarity with his 
brother.

Also held in Kaplan hospital is fellow hunger striker Adel Hareebat, who 
also launched his strike on May 23. Hareebat and al-Tabeesh reported 
that they are suffering from arbitrary repressive practices in the 
hospital including being denied time to pray.

Imad Batran, who had been on hunger strike since May 3, ended his hunger 
strike on August 20 after prison officials agreed to not seek extension 
of his administrative detention when it expires on November 15.  He will 
have spent two years in administrative detention by that date. However, 
on August 27, Israeli forces raided his brother's shop in Al-Khalil and 
detained his brother Mohammad Batran. Mohammad has spent over 6 years in 
Israeli jails.

Ayman Hamdan has been on hunger strike since April 28 to protest his 
administrative detention without charge or trial. On August 14, his 
administrative detention was extended again; he was arrested on August 
21, 2012. On August 27, that detention was announced to be extended for 
a four-month period. His lawyer is appealing the administrative 
detention order.

Also remaining on hunger strike are Abdul Majid Khdairat, who has been 
striking since July 1 and Alaa Hammad, one of the five Palestinian 
prisoners with Jordanian citizenship who continued his strike after the 
other four suspended them; he has been striking since May 2.
