Shalabi supporter hospitalized after solidarity strike

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- A prisoner on hunger strike in solidarity with Hana Shalabi has been transferred to hospital after he was released from jail, a detainees center said Friday.

Suheil Akram Al-Masri, 26, has refused food for 13 days to support the female detainee. Shalabi started a hunger strike 16 days ago to protest her administrative detention, after she was re-arrested having been freed by Israel in an earlier prisoner swap deal.

Al-Masri was transferred to hospital after fainting on his arrival home to Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip on Friday night. His parents said they had expected his release from Israeli prison on April 20, after his four year term completed.

From hospital, Al-Masri vowed to continue his hunger strike until Shalabi is released.

After being held under the same detention without charge regulations, Khader Adnan went on hunger strike for 66 days, until Israeli officials pledged last week they would release him shortly before the order's term.

On Wednesday, the Palestinian Authority's prisoners ministry said administrative detainees in Israeli jails would boycott the prison administration's courts beginning March 1 in protest of the policy.
