Ramallah, ALRAY - Asra Media Office stated on Sunday that six Palestinian detainees, including a female prisoner, continue in their open-ended hunger strike to protest their illegal imprisonment without charge or trial at Israeli jails.


The office pointed out on Sunday that the detainees are currently continuing in their open-ended hunger strike against their administrative detention without charge or trial, amid real danger threatening their life.


The office added that the hunger strikers were identified as:

42-year-old prisoner Ahmad Ghannam, a resident of Dura city southwest of Hebron. He entered his 99th day of hunger strike.

30-year-old prisoner Ismael Ali, a resident of Abu Dis village in occupied Jerusalem. He entered his 89th day of hunger strike.

46-year-old Islamic Jihad leading member prisoner Tariq Qa’dan, a resident of Jenin Governorate. He entered his 82nd day of hunger strike.

29-year-old prisoner Musab al-Hindi, a resident of Tell town southwest of Nablus. He entered his 27th day of hunger strike.

42-year-old prisoner Ahmad Zahran. He entered his 23rd day of hunger strike.

24-year-old Jordanian prisoner Heba al-Lubadi. She entered her 27th day of hunger strike.


It is noteworthy to mention that about 500 Palestinians are currently being held under Israel’s illegal policy of administrative detention, under which prisoners can be held for renewable six-month periods without charge or trial.


In the same context, the IPS is deliberately carrying out a series of punitive measures against Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, which include repeated transfer of the prisoners among jails, putting them in solitary confinement which lacks key ingredient to life, and conducting search and storm campaigns against the prisoners in their cells.
