Tibi: Israel rejects MK's request to visit Shalabi

March 13, 2012 12:04 P.M. (Updated: March 14, 2012 5:50 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israel on Monday rejected a request by MK Ahmed Tibi to visit hunger-striking detainee Hana Shalabi in prison, the minister's office said.

The Israeli prison service and Minister of Internal Security Yitzhak Aharonovich turned down the minister's request despite Tibi's role in brokering a settlement to end detainee Adnan Khader's 66-day hunger strike in February, a statement from Tibi's office said.

Tibi had visited Adnan in prison.

Shalabi entered her 27th day of hunger strike on Tuesday. She has refused food since Israeli forces detained her during a raid on her home near Jenin in the northern West Bank.

The 29-year-old was assaulted during her arrest and is being held in administrative detention, without trial. She has vowed to continue her strike until she is released.
