Gaza, ALRAY - The Israeli occupation has transferred Palestinian detainee Samer al-Issawi to solitary confinement after refusing to end his hunger strike.
Al-Issawi has been on an open-ended hunger strike for the 14th day in a row to protest the Israeli occupation's policy of withholding the bodies of Palestinian martyrs.
Two days ago, al-Issawi was injured after being attacked by Israeli occupation forces during a raid on Section 25 of the Israeli Al-Naqab prison.
Detained in 2003, al-Issawi was sentenced to 30 years in jail before being released as part of a 2011 prisoner exchange agreement between the Palestinian resistance and the Israeli occupation.
Al-Issawi went on a nine-month hunger strike after the Israeli occupation re-detained him in July 2012 before being released about 15 months later.
The Israeli occupation re-detained al-Issawi in June 2014.
The Israeli occupation is withholding the bodies of 104 Palestinian martyrs, in addition to the bodies of 256 martyrs being held in the infamous “cemeteries of numbers”, according to the National Campaign for the Recovery of Martyrs' Bodies.
