Three Detainees Continue Hunger Strike

Hasan Abed-Rabbo, the spokesperson of the Palestinian Detainees Committee, stated that two detainees are continuing the hunger strike, including one who began the strike 77 days earlier, protesting their continued arbitrary Administrative Detention without charges or trial, and one protesting the continued solitary confinement.

Abed-Rabbo said that detainee Raed Rayyan, 27, held at the Ramla prison clinic that lacks basic supplies and specialists and is facing various complications, including a dangerous weight loss and deficiency in minerals, proteins, and vitamins.

He added that the detainee, who began the strike 77 days earlier, suffers pain in various parts of his body, migraines, repeated vomiting, and dizziness.

Abbed-Rabbo added that Rayyan spent nearly two months in solitary confinement, an issue that caused deterioration in his health. The detainee is from Beit Duqqu town, northwest of occupied Jerusalem.

Also, detainee Mohammad Nuwwara, 39, from Ramallah, started the hunger strike nine days earlier, protesting being held in solitary confinement for the eleventh month at the Ramon prison. Nuwwara, serving a life term, was abducted twenty-one years earlier.

It is worth mentioning that, on Tuesday, detainee Khalil Awawda, 40, from Ethna town northwest of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, ended the hunger strike, which lasted for 111 days after receiving assurances for his release.

In related news, more than 640 Administrative Detainees continue to boycott Israeli courts for the 174th day to protest their arbitrary detention and repeated renewals of the Administrative Detention orders without charges.

There are at least 4600 Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli hails, including about 682 held under the Administrative Detention orders.
