Palestinian prisoners enter 50th day of hunger strike

Hebron (QNN)- Two Palestinian prisoners entered on Tuesday their 50th day on hunger strike to protest their continued administrative detention by the Israeli authorities, the Palestinian Prisoners Association said Tuesday.

The health condition of Oudeh Hroub and Hasan Iwewi has deteriorated after 50 days of hunger strike, especially with atrocities committed by Israeli jailers against the two prisoners to force them end their hunger strike.

Oudeh Hroub (50 years old), a father of ten children from Deir Samet village was arrested in December 2018. While Hasan Iwewi (35 years old), a father of three children, was arrested in January 2019.

Under Israel’s longstanding policy of administrative detention, suspects can be held without trial or charge for renewable six-month periods.

According to Palestinian figures, some 6,400 Palestinians are currently being held in Israeli prisons, including 500 in administrative detention.
