RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Palestinian administrative detainees, who have declared their hunger strike 36 days ago including Ayman Atabich, 91 days on hunger strike in a row, are in real danger in Israeli jails.
Ahrar Center for Prisoners Studies said that the administrative detainees’ hunger strike is the most important battle against continued Israeli violations and brutal measures.
The center said that several hunger strikers started suffering serious health symptoms including frequent fainting, vomiting, weight loss, inability to move, high blood pressure, and low sugar level.
The Israeli Prison Service has exercised pressures and tough sanctions on the hunger strikers in order to break their determination and their strike, the center added, calling for serious Palestinian and Arab acts to support the prisoners’ strike.
Ahrar center criticized the continued international silence and bias in favor of Israeli racist policies, calling on international human rights institutions to intervene to save the strikers’ lives before it is too late.
Meanwhile, Palestinian administrative detainee Ayman Atabish continued his hunger strike for the fourth month in a row in Israeli jails amid fears of his sudden death especially that he suffers heart muscle weakness.
The striker’s mother said that her son declared his hunger strike on the 28th of February in protest against his detention without charge or trial, demanding an end to administrative detention policy and the Israeli secret files.
In an interview with PIC reporter, the mother called on international human rights institutions to intervene in support of prisoners’ issue.
He is kept under continued surveillance for fear of sudden cardiac death especially that he suffers heart muscle weakness, the mother added.
