  Re-arrested Palestinian former prisoners plan protest steps, hunger strike


Palestinian prisoners released in the Wafa al-Ahrar agreement and then 
rearrested are considering taking steps toward an open hunger strike, 
said Palestinian lawyer Jawad Boulos on Sunday, 23 August.

Boulos visited the re-arrested prisoners from Jerusalem – who were 
rounded up in mass arrests in summer 2014 and then had their original 
sentence reimposed by a secret Israeli military commission 
without charges and on the basis of secret evidence.

Adnan Maragha, Nasser Abed Rabbo, Jamal Abu Saleh, Alaa Bazian and Aref 
Fakhouri – as well as former long-term hunger striker Samer Issawi – are 
awaiting the decision of the Israeli occupation Supreme Court in their 
case against the reimposition of their sentences. They urged actions on 
the legal, political and popular levels to support their freedom.

63 former prisoners have been rearrested by the Israeli occupation army 
after their freedom in the 2011 exchange agreement with the Palestinian 
resistance which saw 1000 Palestinian prisoners released in exchange for 
the captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.

Samer Issawi 
reported that he ended his solidarity hunger strike on Thursday with 
Muhammad Allan after several days, at the news of Allan’s own strike ending.
