  Four Detainees Continue Hunger Strike, Including One For The 111th Day

November 11, 2019

The head of the Palestinian Detainees Committee, Hasan Abed-Rabbo, has 
reported that four Palestinian detainees are ongoing with hunger strikes 
in Israeli prisons, protesting their continued arbitrary Administrative 
Detention, without charges or trial, including one who started the 
strike 111 days ago.

Abed-Rabbo said that one of the detainees, identified as Ismael Ali 
30, from Abu Dis town near occupied Jerusalem, began his strike 111 days 
ago, and is facing various serious complications.

The second detainee is Ahmad Zahran 
42, from Deir Abu Mashal town, near Ramallah in central West Bank; he 
began the strike 51 days ago.

The third detainee is Mosab al-Hindi 
29, from Tal town near the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and 
started the hunger strike 49 days ago.

It is worth mentioning that Zahran and al-Hindi are in the infamous 
Ramla Prison Clinic, which lacks basic supplies, and are facing constant 
fatigue but are refusing any medications or checkups.

The fourth detainee, Yacoub Hussein, 26, from the al-Jalazoun refugee 
camp near Ramallah, and is holding a hunger strike protesting his 
Administrative Detention orders and being held in solidarity confinement.

Hussein has lost more than 20 kilograms of his body weight, and is 
currently unable to walk or stand, in addition to needing a wheelchair 
due to various health complications.

Palestinian detainees who hold hunger strikes are subject to constant 
Israeli violations, including being held in solidarity confinement in 
cells that are unfit for human use, and are denied visits with their 
families, in addition to being repeated moved from one prison to another.

They are also subject to constant physical and psychological pressures 
by the soldiers, while their cells are searched daily.
