Palestinian captives in Hawwara go on hunger strike

[ 24/12/2010 - 12:41 PM ]

NABLUS, (PIC)-- Palestinian captives at the Hawwara detention centre started an open ended hunger strike on Thursday to protest the harsh detention conditions they are kept under at the notorious centre.
Raed Amer, director of the Palestinian Prisoners Society in the northern West Bank, said that this step was taken by the captives to protest the harsh conditions Palestinian captives suffer inside Israeli occupation jails and detention centres as they are not given the minimum of their rights, not even suitable water and food.
This protest is part of a series of protest measures started by Palestinian captives in a number of Israeli jails, to protest their conditions and the escalation of the prison authorities against the captives in those jails.
