Palestinian hunger strikers Ayman Atbish and Adel Hureibat may slip into coma

RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- An Israeli doctor at Kaplan medical center warned Palestinian prisoners Ayman Atbish and Adel Hureibat, on hunger strike for about 83 days, that they would go into a coma and then die if they kept refraining from taking vitamins, especially B1.

According to Muhjat Al-Quds foundation, the health status of the two detainees has become extremely serious as result of their long hunger strike in protest at their administrative detention without any guilt.

In a letter obtained by the foundation, the hunger strikers said they refuse to undergo medical tests and take vitamins despite their suffering from pains in all parts of their bodies in addition to several health problems.

According to the letter, every one of the prisoners is inside a separate room in the hospital, being watched by three jailers.

Israeli intelligence officers had offered the two prisoners a deal to break their hunger strike in exchange for not extending their administrative detention, but their demand that this offer be put in writing in the presence of their lawyers was refused by the officers. more
