Gaza, Alray - Lawyer for ministry of prisoners Kareem Ajwa said eight prisoners have been still on an open hunger strike since August 25th in solidarity with Dirar Abu Sisi.

He said that the eight prisoners have been transferred from Eshel to the Ashkelon prison and put in solitary confinement.

They declared their strike in solidarity with the prisoner Dirar Abu Sisi who has been under solitary confinement since three years after he was boarded to Soroka Hospital due to his deteriorated health. He has pains in gallbladder, kidneys, liver and in the eyes.

The prison administration reneged on its promise to remove Abu Sisi from solitary confinement.

Of the hunger-striking prisoners are Asim Barghouti, Uday Salem, Iyad al-Pou, Mahmoud Abdel Latif, Uday Sonnoqort , Moath Masalmah, Anis Dweik, and Fadi al-Nimnim.

Ajwa pointed to the tense situation in the Ashkelon prison after being stormed by Special Forces.

Israeli Prison Service imposed a series of sanctions against the prisoners such as banning electrical appliances, the outdoor break times, canteen store, and family visits.

The representative of the Ashkelon prisoners Nasser Abu Hmeed said a number of Israeli prison guards broke into the Ashkelon prison on August 26th, 2013 where they messed up with the holdings of the prisoners and tore mattresses and clothes apart.
