Group: Hunger striker refuses to pay bail

Dec. 22, 2012 2:26 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 25, 2012 2:07 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma’an) -- The Jerusalem Magistrate's Court decided on Thursday to amend its previous decision that abides Samer al-Issawi to pay bail, the Palestinian Prisoners Society said.

The decision was made after al-Issawi told the court that he would not pay any bail, the group said.

The detainee has been on hunger strike for over 140 days in protest of his arrest without charge or trial.

Meanwhile attorney Mufeed al-Hajj said Israeli forces detained 10 Palestinians from Issawiyeh on Thursday morning after they blocked the entrances to the village.

Israeli forces raided houses and caused damage, he said.

They also detained 10 Palestinians from Shufat refugee camp, claiming they were involved in clashes. He said they were brought to court and formally charged.
