Ramallah, ALRAY - Palestinian hunger striker detainees in Israeli occupation jails Ahmad Zahran and Musab al-Hindi have been on hunger strike for over 60 days in a row in protest against their administrative detention without charge or trial.


Commission of Detainees’ Affairs said that 42-year-old prisoner Ahmad Zahran, a resident of Deir Abu Mash'al village to the northwest of Ramallah, has been on strike for 65 days, and 29-year-old prisoner Musab al-Hindi, a resident of Tell town to the southwest of Nablus, has been on strike for 63.


The commission added that the IPS is holding both of the prisoners at the Nitzan prison, pointing out that they suffer from body weakness and extreme exhaustion and refuse to have any medical support or examinations, which puts both of them at risk of life-threatening.


According to Palestinian figures, about 5,700 Palestinians, including 48 women and 250 children, are currently languishing in Israeli detention jails.
