Jordanian hunger striking prisoners in Israeli jails stop drinking water

RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) has warned of the serious health deterioration of the Jordanian prisoners who have been on hunger strike for 97 days.

In a press release issued Wednesday, the PPS pointed to the difficult health situation of the hunger strikers Munir Mari, Alaa Hammad, Mohammed Remawi, and Hamza Al-Dabbas coupled with the Israeli jailors’ repressive policy.

The PPS said that the hunger striker Remawi has stopped drinking water since Tuesday after being assaulted by the Israeli guards due to his rejection to be held alone in a separate room.

Rimawi said that he was subjected to severe beating after being handcuffed despite his serious health situation as part of the Israeli Prison Services' policy to undermine the prisoners' spirits and determination.

The Jordanian prisoners stressed that they will continue their hunger strike despite their health condition. The statement pointed out that the hunger strikers Mari and Dabbas are deprived of medical texts and vitamins. more
