Five Palestinians on hunger strike in Israeli prisons

Ramallah, Aug 5 (Prensa Latina) Five Palestinians imprisoned in Israel continue today on an indefinite hunger strike in rejection of their administrative detention, which allows the Israeli authorities to keep them locked up without charge or trial for an indefinite period of time.

The Palestinian Prisoners Club said in a statement that Saif Qassem Hamdan, Osama Maher Khalil, Qusay Jamal Khader, Saleh Raafat Rabia and Kayed al-Fasfous began their protest this week.

Hamdan, Khader and Khalil have been imprisoned since 2022 without trial.

A few days ago, this Non-Governmental Organization denounced that Israel issued more than 1,600 administrative detention orders in the first half of 2023.

Currently, 1,132 people, including 18 minors, are locked up under this rule, used to arrest Palestinians for renewable intervals that usually range from three to six months on the basis of undisclosed evidence, which even the defendant’s lawyer is forbidden to see.

He said that 80 percent of them have already served time in Israeli jails in the past.
