NABLUS, (PIC)– 30-year-old Islam Hamed, a political prisoner in a Palestinian Authority (PA) security jail, continues for 58th consecutive day his open-ended hunger strike in protest at his illegal detention for five years after completing his three-year prison term.
Family sources told Quds Press on Saturday that Hamed started days ago to refrain from taking water and salt.
They affirmed that the prisoner demands his release after completing his prison term five years ago.
Hamed was arrested on September 4, 2010 by the PA intelligence apparatus in Ramallah after he was charged with carrying out a gunfire attack on an Israeli car boarded by settlers.
Al-Qassam Brigades of Hamas had claimed then responsibility for the attack.
