  Seventy Detainees To Hold Hunger Strike

    The Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) has reported that seventy
    detainees, held in a number of Israeli prisons and detention
    centers, have decided to hold an open-ended hunger strike, starting
    Wednesday.

The PPS said the detainees decided to start their strike in solidarity 
with detainee Nahar as-Sa'ady, who began his hunger strike on November 
20, demanding an end to his solitary confinement, and allowing him 
family visits.

It added that the detainees are also demanding the Prison Administration 
to end the solitary confinement of dozens of detainees, and to release 
all ailing detainees.

Israel claims Sa'ady, who is currently in solitary confinement in Ayalon 
Prison, "planned the abduction of Israeli soldiers," and denied him 
family visits in order "to prevent any communication with people outside 
the prison walls."

Sa'ady denied the Israeli allegations, and said they were made up so 
that the Prison Authority can justify keeping him in solitary confinement.

The Palestinian Detainees Committee said Sa'ady is now totally isolated 
from the outside world, and is placed in a very small, cold cell, that 
is not fit for human use.

The Committee added that Sa'ady also suffers from spinal cord issues; he 
is serving four life-terms and additional 20 years imprisonment. The 
detainee has been in solitary confinement since 2013.
