Six Palestinian detainees remain on hunger strike in protest of their unfair administrative detention

Occupied Palestine (The Inside Palestine)- Six Palestinian prisoners have been on open-ended hunger strike for weeks in protest at their detention administratively, with no indictments or trials.

The Commission of Detainees affairs said on Saturday that the prisoners suffer weight loss, lack of salt and minerals, and extreme fatigue.

The Commission held the Israeli prison service responsible for the prisoners’ lives. It called on the international institutions and NGOs, especially the Red Cross, to assume their responsibility toward that issue.

The hunger-striking administrative detainees are Kayed al-Fasfous, Miqdad al-Qawasmeh, Alaa al-Araj, Hisham Abu Hawash, Rayek Bisharat and Shadi Abu Aker. They have been on hunger strike for 66, 59, 41, 33, 28 and 25 days respectively.

The Israeli occupation authority is holding 550 Palestinian administrative detainees in its prisons with no indictments or trials, including a woman and 4 children.
