Bethlehem – Ma’an –Riyad Al-Amour from Tqu’a village east of Bethlehem said has been on hunger strike for 13 days following improper medical treatment for his heart and stomach conditions, his family said Monday.

Al-Amour told his family by telephone about his condition, and they in turn called the Israeli prison administration to have him moved from the Gilbo'a Prison to another where he can be treated properly.

Al-Amour was detained from his house on 7 May 2002; he was accused of being involved in the death of two Israelis and being affiliated to the Al-Aqsa Brigades, the armed wing of Fatah. He was sentenced to life in prison.
