Islamic Jihad members start hunger strike

March 1, 2012 4:02 P.M. (Updated: March 2, 2012 6:21 P.M.)
JENIN (Ma’an) -- Two imprisoned members of Islamic Jihad started a hunger strike on Thursday in support of female detainee Hana Shalabi.

Bilal Dyab from Jenin, and Thaer Halahla, from Hebron, said in a letter received by Islamic Jihad that they will not stop their hunger strike until Israel ends its policy of administrative detention.

The Ofer military court decided on Wednesday to postpone the hearing of Hana Shalabi, a prisoner on hunger strike, until the judge examines secret evidence with the intelligence services on March 3.

Shalabi started a hunger strike on Feb. 16 after she was re-arrested by Israeli forces, despite being freed in a prisoner swap deal in October.
